I would like the City of Austin to purchase land and build a road that connects Southwest Parkway and US Hwy 290W.

What I propose: - A new road extending from Southwest Parkway, directly east of Mission Oaks Blvd, joining up with Industrial Oaks Blvd at Hwy 290W service road that has an existing traffic light. - Put a street light in at Mission Oaks Blvd and Southwest Parkway. - Remove street light at Boston Lane and SW Pkwy and fill in median.
What this will achieve: - Makes a true connector from SW Pkwy to Loop 1 and Hwy 290 and visa - versa. - Eliminates the backup of SW Pkwy at the Best Buy interchange to Loop 1 and Hwy 290. - Relieves the existing congested traffic from Boston Lane in both directions. - Removes the danger that exists when exiting Industrial/Monterrey Oaks Blvd exit from Hwy 290W (while heading west) and crossing over to Boston Lane to get to Southwest Parkway. - Allows residence of Travis Country to be able to leave on foot or bike with access via Industrial Oaks Blvd / Monterrey Oaks Blvd to shopping, schools (Patton Elem and Small Middle), and Westcreek Fields. - Discourages heavy traffic through private parking lots (like Parkwood Complex)connecting Southwest Parkway and US Hwy 290W.
