Traffic in Austin and how do you drive

Saw this article in the Statesman about traffic congestion being the #1 problem in Austin right now. I don’t know if this is the case, but it is an issue that affects a lot of people all over the city. Another good article in the Statesman (wow, two in one week!!) is about a new book out about driving habits. One interesting tidbit I am not sure I agree with is this. He starts, for example, by making a convincing case about why being a “late […]

People looking to move out of Steiner… according to the Statesman

I read this link this weekend and wondered what people thought. It seems like a random thing to throw in one neighborhood in all of Austin as the one with a long commute time to Austin. The attic isn’t finished, but it could be converted into an additional living space. In all, the house is just less than 3,400 square feet, according to tax records. Most of the people looking at the house have been families who live in Steiner Ranch or other […]

Patching up 620 and other road work

So I see there is road work being done on RM 620 starting this week between 2222 and Quinlan Park Road. The trucks and other road equipment is right past the church on the lake. I fail to understand what they are doing. It seems like they are patching certain sections randomly. I did some research in the TXDOT database and found this link. Key points from it are 2.6 million dollars for this work??? With that kind of money you would think they […]

The case of the ramps that go nowhere…

Driving in South Austin is sometimes a big pain. We were going somewhere on Sunday and driving back on I35N to get to 290 West/Ben White to get to 360 to get home. There is a ramp from 35 to 290 West but it does not connect, so instead we have to wait through two lights (one at 290/35 and the other one at 290 and Congress). I can’t imagine how long it takes to traverse these two lights during rush hour traffic in the morning. There is a similar […]

Apartments coming to Ribelin Ranch

Ribelin Ranch is going to be completely different in a year, people will actually be living there and soon after going to school there. That is the site of a new high school where presumably kids from Steiner Ranch, Riverplace, and Grandview Hills will go to. It will also house a middle school where kids from Riverplace and Grandview Hills, etc will go to school making Canyon Ridge Middle School a Steiner Ranch school only? More details about […]

Patience is needed on the road formerly known as Steiner Ranch Blvd.

Got this email from the developers. I think we need to wait for it to be completely done. Some people in the comments are having a discussion about it. The lane had to be cut wider and compacted again in order to pass the compaction test.  The lane will be resurfaced once it passes the compaction test.  Please let me know if you have additional […]

The road formerly known as Steiner Ranch Blvd

I got a few emails and had a dinner conversation on how terrible the road that leads from the secondary entrance of Steiner Ranch from 620 to Quinlan Park Road on Steiner Ranch Blvd. I was surprised to see that other people were so annoyed with it as I was. For the people that don’t take a left turn at the “first” Steiner Ranch entrance to avoid the light to go to Oasis and then a couple of light changes at Quinlan and 620, you might not […]

Bridge in River Place over Lake Austin?

I had an email from a reader asking if I knew about a bridge being built presumably in the rear of River Place crossing Lake Austin. I have not. Have any of the readers heard of this either? I want to go drive around there today, but forgot. Next weekend. The only three roads it could be off if are Big View Drive, Far View Drive, or Ranch Creek Drive. I doubt it though, because everyone would go nuts if that is happening. Attaching some map […]

Lakeline Station

Found this article about Lakeline Station/Crossings? at the northeast corner of 183 and 620. It is a TOD (transit-oriented development) that will go along the future Cap Metro commuter rail line.Here is a much better article that explains it.Seems like a lot of houses, apartments and retail space to feed into the new rail […]
