@MayorAdler says more lanes on I-35 won't solve Austin's traffic woes — but it's a start. | @MoseBuchele #ATXtraffic kutne.ws/2HuKA40 https://t.co/DlqJQAbJ42
 
“I do not believe that adding lanes to I-35 … is the answer to congestion,” Adler said. He believes that merely adding lanes will make traffic worse on the notoriously congested highway. kutne.ws/2HuKA40
 
Mayor Adler was responding to criticism of his vote in support of the Capital Express Project, which would expand about 30 miles of I-35 between Round Rock and Buda and add up to four non-tolled “managed lanes” of traffic through Austin. kutne.ws/2HuKA40
 
Opponents argue that the project goes against @austintexasgov's Strategic Mobility Plan, which aims to reduce the number of people driving alone to reduce both climate-warming CO2 emissions and traffic. kutne.ws/2HuKA40
 
Adler, who voted in support of the Capital Express Project, says his position on the project has been misunderstood. kutne.ws/2HuKA40 https://t.co/R3MbSn0hFo
 
The problem is, the Capital Express Project specifically forbids that type of toll lane from being developed. In fact, @GovAbbott has declared a moratorium on the development of any toll lanes in the state. Adler hopes that could change. kutne.ws/2HuKA40
 
Adler says by committing money early on to the project, he’s allowing Austin to stay in the running for state funding – if toll lanes become an option again. kutne.ws/2HuKA40 https://t.co/iXE3zIMsqk
 
Adler’s second reason to support the plan is more political. He says his main goal is to get a “high-capacity, rapid mass public transit system” for Austin. But, to do that, city leaders must also address roads. kutne.ws/2HuKA40 https://t.co/QsxkEdQ2vd
 
All sides will have plenty of time to get their positions across. There’s currently no timeline or state money allocated for the project. If money becomes available, there will be more community outreach – and votes – to take before it's shovel-ready. kutne.ws/2HuKA40

He's right. Adding lanes to 35 will reduce congestion. Nobody wants that.
A plan to add lanes to I-35 has a lot of critics. Austin's Mayor wants them to hear him out. kut.org/post/mayor-adl…
