Re: [willows_neighborhood] Willow-101 interchange concerns

One way in on Chester and O"Keefe, and one way out on Durham is a long term solution but not a fast one.

The fastest solution is "No right turn on Chester and O'Keefe from 3pm to 7pm", and "No right turn on red 3pm to 7pm" on Durham.

A sign at Menalto heading to freeway at the Chester/Green intersection indicating "No Outlet:"

...and signs on Chester, Durham and O'Keefe at Laurel and Central saying "No outlet to Willow Road 3pm to 7pm" will solve the immediate problem.

I was thinking the bumper to bumper traffic on Chester could be solved by making the street one-way (so you could enter from Willow but had to drive towards Menalto). That way those of us who live on the street could get to our homes…

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.

Thank you, Dana.

I agree. The traffic related to this new design has been terrible.

I too am worried about the ultimate design and implications for our neighborhood.

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!
