What makes this stretch dangerous is traffic moving at 100 or higher instead of at 80 - causing problems turning off and on the road. A cloverleaf at clappisons will send signals to drivers that they are on a freeway, and will worsen the problem immediately.

Again, this is being approached backwards. If safety is the main concern then we either need to reduce the speed of traffic, or if we think that we have to go 100 instead of 80 then we have to build a proper divided highway.

Read the planning documents. The official plan is to build the overpass and then "monitor the situation". The highway is most certainly going to be more dangerous after the overpass is built - during this "monitoring" phase.
