On-ramp is too short

Today, I used the westbound Interstate 90 on-ramp near Maple Street. It is under construction and is too short, especially in heavy traffic. It is very dicey trying to merge into traffic within such a short distance. Cars backed up because you have to wait for a long enough gap in traffic to safely get up to freeway speed.

Washington State Department of Transportation, I hope you are reading this before someone gets hurt or worse.
