  1. How about a loop to deal with all that traffic? It’s getting so ridiculous. Be nice if it would connect from the South end of 281 where the current construction is and loop to Mustang Dr. all the way up past Mormon mill to Research Blvd. It would be expensive, but I’m for sure when I know the traffic is getting too bad in this town, and when people want to go through Marble Falls, they will stop! Widening 281 will only funnel more congestion from 71, bring a wider backbone to the system to clear the way! It’s possible!
