Re: What Really Causes Traffic Congestion

But you're most still going to have to have ramps, which most likely will have to be ADA compliant. I don't know what the ADA rule is for incline angle, but if Chambers Street on the A/C is any indication, it would take up to half a street block or more before the ramp reaches ground level. Note that the MTA has gotten rid of a few convenient ramps around the subway because it wasn't worth making them ADA compliant.

On top of that, I'm not sure exactly what you're saving in the end. Green time isn't solely for the benefit of cars, it also signals the pedestrians along that light to cross as well. Cars will still have to stop at the intersection for cars travelling across their path, and those that turn will still have to wait for the traffic to clear before making that turn.
