Could this be the end to traffic at the “Y” at Oak Hill?

For everyone who has wasted hours of their lives sitting in traffic at the “Y” in Oak Hill where Hwys 290 and 71 meet, TXDOT has a plan that will soon go into effect to help ease your traffic woes. Though not a permanent solution, the new intersection is something that Austin has never seen before and will hopefully end some of the traffic nightmares commuters have grown accustomed to.
