People who live along Mines Road and have to drive near the World Trade Bridge have to contend with heavy traffic. City officials have tried alleviating the problem by coordinating traffic lights, but the volume of vehicles makes little impact.
So the traffic jam that used to exist along I-35 two decades ago was just rerouted to the west. Not good for those living out there. But for people traveling to or from downtown on I-35 now, it's a cinch. Now if we can only do something about those stalled trains blocking the access roads.
