Get the traffic done!
Emma Long Park access is completely broken. A simple enhancement, rather than wait an hour in line to gain access on City Park Road, is to post estimated wait times at the entrance from 2222. Welcome to the 21st century. Actually, these signs have been common for decades. So much for our "high tech" city. Overhaul the parks and recreation staff.
Emma long park Entrance procedures need to be fixed. We recently waited an hour to drive .5 miles . To Alleviate the strain and wasted time for all Austin residents and park visitors, recommend utilizing the lighted sign at the beginning of city Park Road to show estimated wait times.
Instead of putting traffic lights up at every conceivable intersection, merge the intersecting roadways in one route on an access road that gives them entrance to the highway or access to the other side but covered by an overpass so traffic can keep flowing. Highways like 290, 360, 620, Capital of Texas, etc. were supposed to be our higher-speed transit corridors but they are a mess now.
