Well even if they took out the freeway, there would still have to be a bridge between DTO and CB.
Tunnel! Start going underground behind the Civic and keep going down under the Missouri River. Not quite sure where it would come up in CB. All the land under the bridges becomes developable, or open space, and you get a pedestrian friendly area, plus you get rid of the I-480 wall between North Downtown and the CBD. Infrastructure doesn't last forever, and someday the elevated roadway and bridge will need replacing, so why not a tunnel.
