Willow-101 interchange concerns

Dear Menlo Park City Council members, Robert Haus of Caltran's, and
Angela Obeso of City of Menlo Park,

i have significant concerns and mounting anxiety over the Willow Rd
and 101 interchange. The increased traffic implications are huge and
the new traffic lights and the elimination of two of the on-ramps will
increase and create congestion compared to what we had.

Removal of the "intersection free" on-ramps - Willow Rd heading East
to 101 South and Willow Rd heading West to 101 North - and moving
these freeway on-ramps to the traffic light intersections severely
impedes the previous flow. These on-ramps used to be easy access to
the freeway and thus free up space on Willow Rd for cars moving to the
more congested areas. The new design SUCKS - unnecessarily
restricting this access and contributing to congestion.

Please leave those on-ramp roads open as part of the finished project
- fewer cars will be stuck at traffic lights on the intersection and
causing congestion and pollution as they site idling for TWO traffic
lights to let cars move through.

I am very confidant that the new design will only decrease flow and
will not improve safety.

PLEASE KEEP THE EASY ON-RAMPS. I know this request is late BUT the
roads still exist - keep them!
