I-35, I-70, and US 71 all need to go, but US 71 might be the most ideal recipient of the grant just because it will probably be the most expensive due to the length. It will probably have a low political cost because industry won't really be affected most cars just use 435 already if they are going straight through. I-70 removal is important, but probably doesn't need the grant as much because the cost would be less and the sale of land can help offset the cost. I35 is probably easiest, but also has the lowest benefit I would think. Removing or redoing the penn valley interchange would have a high benefit, but it may not even qualify for this grant.
