I hadn't heard that before, thank you for sharing

I can fix the problem for about one hundred dollars. Yep, that's all! Just one hundred dollars will cure the congestion on 23S in Wayne at the Spaghetti Bowl. Just give me a few cans of paint!

All that needs to be done is that the lane markers on 23S need to be repainted a bit differently! If vehicles in the third lane of traffic on NJ-23S had the option to take US-46E as well as I-80E, the congestion problem would clear itself up immediately.

Is anyone at the DOT reading this? How about the Assembly? Alex De Croce, where are you?

(Oh yes... direct access from NJ-23S onto I-80W certainly wouldn't hurt!)
or direct access to 23N from 80E

...that interchange has been a cluster-f**k for almost 30 years, I don't know that anything will be done in our lifetime
