Some of the CTRMA projects include the construction of toll roads which the organization undertook. The problem of traffic is something that a lot of people in the city of Austin face. Every year, thousands of people migrate to the town of Austin and bring their vehicles along with them. When the city was built, the people in charge of making it never accounted for the fact that the population would grow to this massive a size. There is now a constant fight for space in the city, with cars not having a proper place to park, and the traffic soaring, especially during peak hours. The concept of having first toll roads was exactly what it needed to be able to diverge the traffic and put less of a strain on the roads. The solution was met with open arms by the state government and the people of Austin. Individuals who wanted a faster route to take on their daily commute could opt for these roads, which can be accessed after paying a small toll fare.
