Description

Traveling Westbound on Massachussetts Ave towards Chinatown has been worsened since the I St NW lane was removed at 5th St. Now drivers have to sit through several cycles of lights to make left turns onto 5th St NW at Mass Ave and the quick right turn onto I between 5th and 6th Sts NW (a common occurrence). Oncoming traffic headed toward the 3rd Street Tunnel never abates and this could be easily remedied with a left turn arrow or delay that allows several cars to turn left on 5 St NW before 2 way traffic opens up. It would also prevent near crashes with pedestrians and oncoming vehicles from frustrated drivers trying desperately to make the turn.
