Construction in Austin is not mixing well with the increased traffic
In the past 10 years, Austin has grown by leaps and bounds. As more and more people pour into the Texas state capital, the road infrastructure that exists is beginning to wane. Add to that Google Fiber construction in Austin and you get a tangled mess. Who knew Google Fiber would be so popular? (we did)
Nearly three years ago in April of 2013, Google Fiber got started with the construction of its fiber network in Austin, and the traffic was only slightly less bad. But now with construction going full bore in some places and tapering off in others, the combination of added vehicles has made things nearly unlivable.
AUSTIN CONSTRUCTION AND TRAFFIC ARE RUINING MY LIFE

While no one likes to live in a construction zone, regardless of how much traffic that already exists, not everyone may be aware of the connection between the great potential of Google Fiber and the hassle of it’s installation. While those in the South of Austin are already enjoying Google Fiber and possibly now telecommuting, not everyone is so fortunate. It is the hope of the authors of this blog that we can help interested parties to acknowledge that (although we are unaffiliated with Google) Google Fiber will do it’s best to make construction and repairs quick.
