  1. One of the reasons why I bought my home in Antioch Estates was because it was away from the interchange. Now an interchange will be in our backyard. It will interfere with neighorhoods and the elementary school. I really don’t see how this is going to relieve traffic with an interchange 3 miles away from the current one. This will not alleviate all of the traffic coming down from north Alabama. Four lane Antioch yes. Interchange no. Tourists coming i-10 will funnel at exit 56 and touristsee coming from up north will funnel down a 4-lane Antioch Rd
