Hello everyone! I am relocating to CC in August for a job and was wondering, what is the traffic like on the southside of town/bay area? Any areas/streets that have traffic problems? Is there a rush hour time?

Airline & SPID is about the only place where I have seen consistent rush-hour traffic, especially in the afternoon.

During "rush hour" it takes me 16 minutes to go 14 miles.

Yeah, sometimes that traffic can get pretty backed up on the south end of SPID, from Kostoryz to Airline, especially if there has been a wreck. During 5pm rush hour, seems most of the traffic congestion is heading toward the Island, while the morning would be more the opposite way (toward I-37/downtown).

There have been federal studies: Corpus Christi & Buffalo NY are the two most drivable cities in the US.

Houston- LA- are among the worst.

We used to joke that a "Corpus traffic jam" was a line of 5 cars behind a slow-moving Winnebago with Ontario plates.

Wow, interesting. Can you cite the study?

So, I take it there are no talks of toll roads in the near future?

There's actually talk of adding toll lanes to SPID, Crosstown and the Harbor Bridge, which would help fund the construction of the new Harbor Bridge. I'm all for it if it means new, better roads sooner. The Harbor Bridge should be a priority. It's too old and slowly becoming to low to allow the larger ships. They keep sinking money into dredgeing deeper ship channel when a new bridge is needed more. Not only for commerce but for safety.

Oh, and the survey is from Pep Boys I think.
