Decennial Insanity?

Perhaps it is just me, but it seems like every 10 years or so, traffic just goes wonkier than normal here. In the last three weeks, my commutes that used to take 25-35 minutes have suddenly become bumper-to-bumper marathons of 45-90 minutes.

I recall this happening in the mid-nineties when suddenly there was just a ton more traffic than usual.

Anyone else notice this? I usually drive 59 or 10 to head to the west side of town and even the Westpark tollway is all clogged up these days.

Yeah, I know, whine whine…

    In the last five years, Houston has experienced the second highest increase in rush-hour traffic congestion among major cities in the nation. Mike Jaz, Webster City Manager, said that the city will request additional infrastructure if the traffic analysis is relevant.
