Four DFW Freeways in Top 10 of State’s Most Congested Roads

No one who lives in the Dallas area will be surprised to learn that a new study by the Texas Department of Transportation places three Dallas County and one Tarrant County highways in the top ten most congested roads in Texas. The Dallas Morning News has an interesting article about this situation, with more details. The section of highway where our office is located is the 12th most congested in the state. Here are a few excerpts about Dallas traffic from the article:

The report, ordered by the Legislature last year, went live Wednesday and shows, as expected, that roads with the biggest traffic messes are clustered in the state’s biggest cities. Of the top 10, four are in Dallas or Tarrant counties, one is in Austin, and Houston drivers are stuck with the other four, including the two worst.

Of the 15 most congested roads in Texas, five are in Dallas. Of those, four either touch Central Expressway or are segments of it. And fixes for U.S. 75 are probably a decade or more away.

And as for traffic near downtown, that’s not likely to get much better until either the Trinity Parkway is built or the state finds a way to rebuild the Mixmaster and Canyon without the new toll road, a prospect that appears years away at best.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
