I think that Mountain View City Council should temporarily shut down the on-ramp for 1 or 2 weeks, monitoring the impact that it has on traffic through the neighborhood & traffic flow during rush hour around train crossings. This will be a low-cost method of accurately assessing the impact that closing the Stierlin on-ramp to Central Expressway will have on our city. The results of this temporary closure may even lead to some unexpected brainstorming solutions that are fiscally & community-responsible.
