Why It’s Needed

The Route 288 southbound to Route 360 westbound off-ramp carries a high volume of exiting traffic during the afternoon rush hour, with over 1,700 vehicles in one travel lane. As a result, vehicles back-up onto Route 288 beyond the deceleration lane, extend nearly a mile upstream and causing a pattern of rear-end crashes.
