But weekend traffic is irritating. I honestly believe families just drive around 281, 1604, and stone oak parkway to kill time and site see big-box architecture.
what are the big-box architecture along stone oak?

I think the OP was referring to the big shopping centers in the Stone Oak area - Costco, Wal Mart, all of that new stuff at 281 and Stone Oak, that sort of thing.

I am always amazed at the traffic in that part of town. It's like people spend so much time driving they live in their cars.

The only deal with the Stone Oak area and traffic is 281- it hasn't been upgraded to a freeway yet out there, and during peak times it can very much turn into a parking lot.

But like everyone keeps saying, I'm sure it's not as bad as LA (although I've never been there so I don't know).

yes there is light at the end of the tunnel...
281 toll road construction as well as widening of blanco rd to start next year,
those 2 should bring relief when done...
any other planned road construction in and around stone oak area?
i hope they connect huebner and hardy oak, or better yet all the way to 281.
that should give an alternate route...

I've heard about these. Any idea when these are supposed to be done?

Heck, the traffic is not even as bad as Austin.

ah! this IS true!.....
they're working on that as well, though.
SH-130 segments 1-3 are done, and once segment 4 and SH-45 SE is done, there will be a nice little roundabout loop around Austin to avoid I-35. There is a price though- SH-130 and SH-45 ARE toll roads...
There is also 183A and 290 under construction....

I lived out in Leander and got to use 183A often. It sure did make a big difference in getting around. We got our txtag early and did not have to pay for the tolls the whole time we used it. We moved back here in SA just around the time that the free time expired.
