TYLER-- "Too busy and too many cars" is the cry of many Tylerites. The traffic on Loop 323 can be frustrating. In fact, in TxDOT's list of the 100 most congested roads in Texas, one section of the Loop ranks 54th. This part runs from the intersection at Broadway to University Blvd.
Right now, officials are telling citizens to look for alternate routes, like Grande Extension. Larry Krantz with TxDOT says, "We're actually outgrowing our transportation infrastructure."
He says they hope to be off of the list next year. Until then, Krantz says they will try to work with the city and county to extend other roads in Tyler.
