El Camino Traffic Bottle Neck

Dear Menlo Park City Council,
I recently became a new resident of Menlo Park when I moved to University Drive. My daily work commute includes El Camino Real. I turn off as soon as I possibly can onto side streets going through quiet residential neighborhoods in order to avoid the bottleneck that occurs on El Camino in Menlo Park. I would stay on El Camino to Middle Avenue, which is more of a thoroughfare, if it wasn't such a bottleneck to get there. Like many Menlo Park residents, I turn off into quiet neighborhood streets which then become thoroughfares. If you could improve the traffic problem by increasing the two lanes to three, I would stay on El Camino and take middle Avenue to my destination on University Drive. Today at approximately 5:15pm, northbound traffic was backed up to the Palo Alto University Avenue overpass. Prior to that point, traffic was busy but moving. 
Please consider the change and increase the lanes to reduce this notorious bottleneck, thank you.
Sincerely,Pamela Mullen
