Where's your worst traffic problem?

Where's your worst traffic problem and when.

For me, it is Rt. 71 in Bee Cave where it goes to 1 lane for construction. It can take 20 minutes sometimes to get from Southwest Parkway to Bee Caves Rd during rush hour.

No mas, lucky for me.

It used to be when I passed Oltorf, either direction.

Going from 360 onto 183 North sucks. For some reason they decided to put 4 traffic lights on the last 1/2 mile of 360 and then merging onto 183 is horrible.

I-35 and Ben White. If you use Ben White and you live south on I-35, then that intersection is the worst (both coming and going).

The good news: they're FINALLY building those flyover ramps.
The bad news: while the construction is ongoing, the traffic is even worse.

Worse news, who knows when they will finish?

For me it's always South from Oltorf to Airport. I rarely can get through Austin without coming to a complete stop in there, no matter what day or time.

Just about any time I get on the 183 it seems. My goodness, if I lived an actual distance from where I work this traffic would drive me NUTS! I work just off the 183-Capital of Texas offramp, and it is getting ridiculous to get on or off this bloody highway.

I can only imagine what the people who were born and raised in Austin must think about this population/traffic explosion. Just 20 years ago Austin was still considered a large town/small city, now it is something different all together.

Crossing the river around rush hour has gotten worse! It seems that 5 o'clock traffic has started backing up by 4. Is this a Christmas problem, or is this the new trend?

It's been that way for years now. Friday is the worst.
