This is the intersection of Hwy 79(E. Palm Valley Blvd.) & FM-1490 (A.W. Grimes Blvd.). Why is this intersection significant enough that I’m choosing to blog about it today? It’s going to be my way to work and my way home each day and going this path should cut my travel time by 7-10 minutes each way. It’s supposed to be open by now and it looks complete from both sides but for some reason, it’s not. Maybe the middle isn’t yet. You can’t see it very well in this picture but there is a strip in between Hwy 79 (going across) and A.W. Grimes (being constructed) that’s just dirt. It looks like all they have to do is fill in that dirt with real road and we could use it easily enough. But not. We just keep getting teased. Ah, I’ll be so excited when they finally open it.
Speaking of opening, the new Steak & Shake in So. Austin is supposed to open on Wednesday. I’d go to the grand opening with my friend Kristina but I’m hosting the department Christmas Party that afternoon so that looks like a no go. It doesn’t look like they’ve even broken ground on the one that’s going in behind IKEA yet. Another teaser…. The story of my life.
