Re: [willows_neighborhood] Willow-101 interchange concerns

I’ve live in the Willows since 78’ and agree the traffic is terrible. I like the new design of the Willow/101 on and off ramps - the only problem I experience there is that right now people are confused because it’s new. there has been a bit more traffic then “usual” and I’m hoping that it is due to the construction/road closures/ramps closed and the unfamiliar new design of the interchange.
AS for the traffic on Willow that will continue and the cut-through traffic thru the Willows it will continue until some major changes happen, for example close Marmona at Gilbert OR make it a right turn only enter Marmona from Gilbert - that’s just an example.
