This interchange is about to be improved at long last and open in September, lacking almost all of the rapid transit proposals which would have improved just about everything had it passed in 1968.  Bummer, eh?

Note: the 1968 Republican national convention took place weeks before the 1968 Democratic convention and all the protests surrounding that one.   There were no major incidents on the Republican one in Miami. 
(also, per wiki: “Shortly after the beginning of his term [as governor of California], Reagan tested the presidential waters in 1968 as part of a ‘Stop Nixon’ movement, hoping to cut into Nixon’s Southern support and be a compromise candidate if neither Nixon nor second-place Nelson Rockefeller received enough delegates to win on the first ballot at the Republican convention. However, by the time of the convention Nixon had 692 delegate votes, 25 more than he needed to secure the nomination, followed by Rockefeller with Reagan in third place.”)

It appears here that Arby’s built up to 18 units in the Puget Sound area in 1968.  By our count, only three remain in 2012.
