Though Carlin area is just outside of Eureka County, the interchanges in Carlin are shown in this study due to their importance in accessing SR 278. Eastbound vehicles on I-80 that exit at the west Carlin interchange cannot get back on I-80 without passing through town.

This includes traveling directly past a school zone and other sensitive areas. Exhibit 8 displays the interchange layouts through Carlin that restrict vehicles from having full access at every interchange. This could potentially be confusing to drivers unfamiliar to the area, and cause undue civilian exposure to nuclear waste transport vehicles.
