I don't think it was ever about getting perfectly convenient highway access. It's more that Young wants to offer the same experience to fans that they get from shopping at the Medowlands or commuting to work in Burlington. He doesn't care about how crappy the traffic gets, but that they don't have to do the scary job of navigating Hamilton streets.

Just pull onto the 403, get off an offramp, and then drive up North Service Road, then park at the stadium. That's it. The fact that it's an hour of bumper-to-bumper traffic isn't the point, or the cost of parking, or the inability to access it by car... it's the simplicity that's important, so he can get suburbanites that are used to that kind of driving and are willing to pay more to see a game than impoverished Hamiltonians.
