crossing at Ravenwood Avenue

Dear City Council Members:
   I am writing to you to object to the proposed interchange project at Ravenswood Avenue. What I see is that there be will a diversion of even more traffic from Highway 101 onto Ringwood Avenue, where I live, and onto Ravenswood Avenue. I am aware that this sounds like a NIMBY situation (“not in my backyard”), but I was raised here, still live here and pay taxes to live here in Menlo Park. Now I feel like I’m living next to a freeway. The traffic has become even greater since Marsh Road was closed for repairs. Drivers from Highway 101 were being diverted onto Bay and then Ringwood Avenue during that time, but even though Marsh Road re-opened, the traffic has not lessened. Every day there is more and more traffic on Ringwood and now a complete mess at Middlefield and Ravenswood. It seems that before that time drivers were not aware of the option of taking Ringwood Avenue and then when they discovered this new “short cut” to get to Menlo Park and Stanford, they changed their driving routes. Now even I am taking short cuts just to get over to shop and dine in downtown Menlo Park.
   I propose that the new interchange be built at the intersection of El Camino and Glenwood/Valparaiso because this would be a way for drivers to cross town and then drive all the way up to Alameda de las Pulgas and then on to Highway 280. Crossing El Camino at Ravenswood leads to nowhere! Crossing El Camino at Oak Grove also leads to nowhere! Think about it! Please consider my opinion.
Thank you.
