Traffic getting out of Sacred Heart OMG...trying to get out of this school in the morning is a scary nightmare. There should be a person or a stop light right at that entrance to allow cars to get out.

There also doesn’t seem to be any plan to deal with the traffic that will result from the new Stanford buildings going up on El Camino (where those old auto dealerships use to be). Construction seems to be moving at a brisk pace now but that’s one of the most congested corridors on El Camino already during the afternoon rush. The resulting gridlock is just going to make it impossible to transit between Palo Alto, Menlo and Atherton.
