Re: What Really Causes Traffic Congestion

I don't see any comparison between walking speeds on a ramp as compared to crossing the street at a traffic signal. All it says is that on a ramp speeds are restricted because of the width of the ramp. But walking speeds are also restricted at ground level also because of the excessive crowding and waiting for signals to change. It does, however, recognize the advantages of grade separation. If the ramps are adjacent to buildings, perhaps space on the second level could be redesigned to accommodate additional retail space eventually giving 42 Street two levels of retail near intersections.
