Still listed as in design and permitting phase, no contracts awarded yet.

I changed my commuting hours specifically to avoid rush hour. I was originally 8-4:30 and am now 7:15-3:45. My commute dropped 30 minutes each way by making that 45 minute change!

Right -- C.R.A.Z.Y that they are allowing hundreds and hundreds of new residences (including apartments!) to be built on 160 between Gold Hill and Stonecrest when traffic on that stretch is already a nightmare. The changes to 160/Gold Hill intersection are not even slated to start until at least some of these homes will likely be sold and moved into. Hard to imagine. We will be looking at relocating a little further out before the area is total gridlock.

So true. There are now at least 3 new developments going in on 160 between 77 and gold hill road. The houses are selling and pre-selling fast, but those folks don't know what they're signing up for--they'll be trapped either way on 160. They just see "new house under $300K with granite," and they plunk down their money. I already miss the goat farm, anybody else?? It was fun for us to drive by and see them and the dogs out in the field.

Over the last few days even more survey flags were put up- sure looks like something is about to happen.
