I live in Fort Bend County and I am just amazed at how the traffic conjestion has exploded since I moved there in 2008. The Southwest Freeway is a joke, Highway 90 is getting crazy, Westpark & Highway 6 South (come on, are u serious) ! Was thinking maybe they could consider connecting the useless Fort Bend Tollway to South Post Oak and have that freeway built out from the connection at the West Loop south of Bellaire, all the way out to where the Grand Parkway is going to be south of Rosenberg. That would provide some relief for us out in Fort Bend (second largest county in the region, 585,375 pop). Just saying, please do something TXDOT.

Unincorporated Houston is very weird. I grew up in unincorporated Harris County and didn't realize how different it was until I moved to different places (DFW and now LA). There are definitely some things missing in the Houston metro that having more incorporated cities would solve. It's also about time all that money that's spent stays local to their respective areas. Maybe now there can be more planning and design to areas that are stuck in this weird limbo. I hope this moves forward. I think it can really benefit the Houston area overall. Houston still would have gigantic city limits that it already has a hard time maintaining. What does HAIF think?
