Slow spot

Slow spot:

” The area [of I-290] near the I-190 onramp is also confusing and the study recommends re-striping in that area.”

One of the commenters hit this one – they had restriped it when they repaved last year. THey removed the surprise merge of the slow lane on 290 and the high-speed lane on 190, gave exiting traffic a separate lane and everything (after a few days of adjustment) started flowing smoother. Then they striped it back to the way it is now and it became a free for all again.

Engineers: Rt. 13 improvements would ease chronic congestion

Engineers: Rt. 13 improvements would ease chronic congestion

:

“[M]ajor improvements for the state-owned section of Route 13, a chronically congested area near the Route 2 interchange, were presented to residents and officials at City Hall last night. “

Yep, this is pretty badly needed. I was up that way during the day on Monday and every time I try to get through there, it both simultaneously not moving and a mad dash to get into the intersection without an accident.
