Letter: A safer alternative to Fred Meyer intersection

Regarding the dangerous intersection for left turns off Egan southbound, I didn’t see anything in your article about simply closing that left-turn lane. Drivers can easily drive down to the Sunny Point interchange and avoid crossing Egan traffic entirely. Seems like that option would be the least expensive and would not require corps of engineers permitting, etc. I always take the few extra minutes to go that route, rather than risking crossing high speed traffic at Fred Meyer. Same with turning left northbound onto Yandukin, it is safer to proceed to the McNugget intersection.
