How will you coordinate with regional partners to meaningfully address our increasing traffic level? What is your long-term vision for addressing traffic in Austin, and what would be the immediate first actions you would champion as a City Council Member to address the crisis?

Frank Ward III

City Council, District 8

We must work closely with county leadership and TxDOT to ensure that major projects like the new underpasses at MoPac are completed on schedule, and the Oak Hill Parkway moves forward without further delay. We also need to expand existing roadways, study new connections, and optimize traffic signals (make the traffic flow more efficient).
