  2. This is the second time i have tried to reach someone at pendot but with no response. I would like to know if it is at all possible to have an exit on the east bound lane at gladwyn. There is a very long stretch to belmont avenue and more often than not the traffic is tied up here-today for instance when there was an accident in the left lane-in fact one motorist went backwards down the exit just to get off. i am sure you are aware that this roadway is very often very very crowded and there are not enough lanes for all of the traffic. Anything that could be done to alleviate congestion would be helpful since building a second level is probably out of the question financially and otherwise altho it seems that this would be a great solution. Thank you
