Divert commercial vehicles to utilize tolls at zero cost
Just an idea to help divert large commercial vehicles to use the toll roads to reduce space on I35, 183, Mopac, etc.
I35 through Austin is extremely congested during rush hours (7 am-10 am & 3 pm - 7 pm). As a professional commercial driver, business owner and citizen of Austin I feel a big first step is to divert commercial vehicles to the tolls and as a perk to get more of these heavy tractors off I35 through Austin city limits is to allow the tolls to be at zero cost for minimum of 6 months while working on getting new upper or underground roads through and around Austin. A loop around Austin alone would help ease the traffic, however this will take many years of planning and construction.
