Now can you explain why there is no interchange from US 6/6th Avenue to I70 East?  (The corresponding conspiracy theory I've heard for years is that Stevinson blocked that idea so that motorists would need to drive by his dealerships on Indiana and Colfax in order to get to the I-70E on ramp on Colfax.)
