Heading south on I-95 and tired of sitting in traffic during afternoon rush hour?




Stuck on I-95 during afternoon rush hour

Word of advice: Don't even think about going over to Philips Highway because it's worse.


Philips Highway is no speedway these days


Need more advice? No matter how much of your money is sunk into widening roads in the future, unless a region wide building moratorium is implemented, congestion will only get worse.




Would you like to have viable transit options that don't involve rubber wheels, asphalt and white knuckle driving? If so, make an effort to show your support for multi-modal transportation alternatives at one of the open house meetings this week.
