Any advice welcome...
1604 is four-lane all the way to 90 now. Traffic really isn't bad at all. I go from the 1604/Potranco area to "old Kelly AFB", about 13 miles, and it takes 15-20 minutes. About 4 or 5 miles of my commute is through several red lights after I get off 90 though. If you're staying on 1604 to 35, you shouldn't have any problems.

Yes, the further north you go, the worse. The 151/1604 area can be bad going south in the AM.

This morning about 6:30 I was able to set the cruise at about 58 mph at Potranco/1604 and didn't have to turn it off until I got to the turn at 90.

I owned a house there from 1992 to 2003 and have to say we had no problems. My husband was out of the country for a year and I never felt concerned for our safety while he was gone. Never even used the alarm system. I have to say, I prefereed it in 1992 when it was a smaller community and the builders were better. Your neighbors can make or break it though. We had (and he still lives there as far as I know) a next door neighbor who felt the yard requirements didn't apply to him so his yard always looked bad. Luckily, it didn't stop us from selling the house in 2003 and it has sold again since then. As for safety, no place is 100% safe anywhere anymore, so just be safety conscious as you would be anywhere.
