This page contains some visual aids that are useful in explaining the Town Center Intersection issues. I believe these show that the center of the intersection will change, but, it is very localized and does not effect the character of the intersections. In addition, there are pages about the Intersection's problems and the Project Timeline and Previous Plans. There are two photoshop visualizations: one from Grinnell Park and one from the North. There are a few images from Virtual Reality, and an Animated GIF.

Before and after images. For the best comparison, use your Browser's OpenInNewTab option on each image. You can then toggle between to two tabs to see changes.
