Ugh. I would insert the requisite complaint, but that is becoming cliche by this point.

I agree with your choice of intersection but would change the orientation to northbound Perimeter. The intersection at Oak Bluff creates a plug of cars that does not resolve itself by Wilkes, leading to no room for cars merging northbound that either a) do not have the power or room to accelerate up the incline, or b) exhibit a near perfect contingent of drivers who are too defensive to use their gas pedal assertively. I have sympathy for drivers attempting that merge, but I believe (b) plays a critical role that is often overlooked.
