Description

The ramp has two lanes: One for those turning right to cross the Memorial Bridge, and one for those turning left towards Arlington Cemetery. Those coming from 110-N have to merge with those exiting from the GW Parkway, and there is always a huge backup while the left lane remains free and clear. Couldn't the left turn only lane be changed to a left AND right turn lane? Memorial Drive is two lanes anyway, so having two cars turning right at the same time would not be a problem, and it would reduce the ramp backup a ton.
