Easier Drive at Beltway Ramp
The Upper Marlboro commuter who wrote to me for Sunday's column about congestion on the ramp from the Capital Beltway to southbound Branch Avenue in Prince George's had this to say about the Maryland State Highway Administration's fixes.
Hello Dr. Gridlock:
On Monday, I traveled through the Beltway/Branch Avenue interchange at around 5:30 p.m. and the weekend's modifications to the off ramp seem to have did the trick. Everything was much improved.
There were no delays on either loop of the Beltway and Branch Avenue flowed well even with the new lane drop.

The state extended the ramp lanes carrying inner and outer loop traffic so drivers would not have to do a difficult merge on the ramp. For you others who use the ramp, are you also finding the traffic flow better this week?
