Willow Rd / 101 interchange

Dear City Council,

I realize you just met on this issue, but the conclusion to install "no
through traffic" signs on Willows Neighborhood streets does not address the
root cause - the traffic on Willow Rd.

Since the traffic signals have been turned on at Willow Rd / 101, traffic
on Willow Rd towards the Dumbarton bridge during evening rush-hour has
gotten much worse. I have also been on University Ave in Palo Alto during
evening rush hour, and traffic going to the Dumbarton bridge has also
gotten worse since the Willow Rd / 101 traffic lights were turned on.

I have also observed that the backup that normally occurred on 101
northbound exiting onto Willow Rd towards the Dumbarton bridge is gone
since the Willow Rd / 101 traffic lights were turned on.

My simple conclusion is that the Willow/101 traffic lights give priority to
traffic coming from 101, and it makes Willow Rd and University Ave traffic
unbearable while eliminating back-ups on 101.

This can be easily evaluated, and easily adjusted. Please work with
Caltrans to evaluate this.

Thank you,
Rusty Gaillard
resident on Willow Rd in Menlo Park
