Big Draws to Denton Bring Big Traffic and Parking Concerns

Recommended Posts

The end of summer and beginning of the school year means major setbacks for drivers in Denton.

In the past week motorists report significant increases in traffic triggered by the return of school and big end-of-the-summer events to town.

"It is horrible everywhere you go," said University of North Texas student Charles Atchinson.

The biggest problem spots seem to be around the UNT and Texas Woman's University, where the return of students significantly adds to the city's population each year and to the traffic flow on the streets.

"6,000 folks in the housing," said UNT Transportation Director Dr. Geary Robinson. "We have another 30-some thousand that are commuting up to us that live in the greater area."

That's just at the one school, and though it's not unusual to see in college towns, having two schools really pushes the capacity in Denton.

Well apparently geary(?) doesn't know what he's talking about because 30k students aren't "coming up from the greater area." 

I assume if I live two blocks away from campus then I'm "comming up from the greater area?"
