    You shouldn’t expect new highway lanes without a toll.

    That’s in Colorado, of course. No toll lanes in Arizona. Paying their taxes for over 30 years, people don’t want no stinkin’ toll lanes; that includes the 22 mile 8-lane South Mountain freeway opening by the end of the year.

      That sounds horrible.

        It is very different from Denver. Phoenix is the 7th largest city and the MSA is 11th. The South Mountain freeway is the last of the freeways that were laid out four decades ago. The good news is rated 47th for congestion.

          Yeah, maybe someone should update their plans from 4 decades ago. New highways are not a good thing.
          Everyone in Phoenix is going to die in the heat from climate change, but yay, 47th in traffic congestion!
