Your H-Town traffic breakdown!
Welcome back, Houston! This week has been quite busy in terms of traffic. I brought you information, first on “KPRC 2 News Today,” about a complete closure coming up on the 59/610 interchange project, an update on the East Beltway Ship Channel Bridge progress and a look at the current price at the pump!
It’s all about safety this week, as students head back to class plus major West Loop closure this weekend
Thousands of students started their fall semester in these last few days. Happy back-to-school season to Klein, Galena and Fort Bend ISD among many many others. I’m sure you’ve definitely seen the traffic pattern change in your morning drive. It is BUSY out there. I remember looking at Spring Cypress Road near Klein Cain High School and it was dark red. Drivers, now that it’s getting a bit more congested out there, you’ve got to leave with extra time in the morning. We have so much going on early in the morning in our neighborhoods with kids headed back to class. School buses are running, kids riding their bikes or walking to school...the last thing you want to do is to rush out the door and speed down your neighborhood streets. Let’s do our best to keep our students safe out there!
The button in your car that can help you save money!
Happy Friday-eve, my friends! I’ve wondered about the benefits for this button for as long as I’ve been driving. If you’re looking for it, you’ll find it, but it’s often the thing you likely look at and aren’t sure what to do with it. Our amazing Digital Special Projects Manager describes this button perfectly: “...The recirculation button is the button on your dash that sports a car outline with a U-shaped arrow inside of it. This button stops air flow from outside your vehicle so your air conditioner recirculates the air inside of the vehicle that’s already cool or on its way to being cool.”

Yeah, when we say massive, we meant it. You’ve got to prepare now, because it ain’t gonna be fun.
