Adding ‘mystery lane’ would solve I-280 jams
Regarding the Town Crier article “I-280 bottleneck proves both dangerous and frustrating” (March 8):
Solution: Fix Interstate 280 by adding the “mystery lane” that disappears at Magdalena Avenue, then reappears a few hundred meters south (as a high-occupancy vehicle commuter lane). It is crazy to go from four lanes to three lanes and back to four lanes – all within approximately 700 meters – on an interstate highway! Who designed this major flaw into our city?
