My own measurements showed that the lanes we were in were moving about the same speed (lanes 1 to 6) but I did get the impression that the right most lane (8) was moving faster than the others, even though when pulses were released it should have been the last. While in lanes 1-6 I kept seeing the same trucks as neighbours after each pulse, the ones in 8 were seen and never seen again. When we got to the final merge point, for some reason lane 8 was being let through constantly while other lanes were let through one at a time. This was under the direct supervision of the exodus crew, so I was curious about the reason and just what was going on.

Dump the pulse and just have the 2 outside lanes for the lines out with the 2 lanes beside those to go around the breakdowns.
You can only put so much traffic on to 37 anyway and this way the lines would never stop, just a continious slow cruise to the pavement.

It's going to take time to clear that stuff, You're going to have to wait on your way out just like you had to wait on your way in. Plan for it, it's part of the event.
