Is there a way to look at the lights & timing at the Crestview stop and intersection? The rail crossing lights turn on at N Lamar & Airport and the intersection is completely stopped for approx 4 minutes BEFORE the train even arrives at the station, then the crossing lights remain on for another minute or so AFTER the train departs Crestview. All in all, it takes about 7 minutes sitting at the light for one train to go by. It leaves a VERY long line of waiting cars at the intersection in all directions when there is no train. If there's a way to look into the timing of the lights and maybe decrease the time the crossing lights stop the intersection at the Crestview Station that would be WONDERFUL!! Thanks!

If I'm not mistaken TxDOT recently awarded a grant to CapMetro that would be used partially for signalling upgrades to fix almost this exact problem.

Good luck getting TxDOT to do anything, but waste money on advertising booster seats, and telling motorists to slow down. TxDOT refuses to make it's roads ADA complaint. TxDOT= Overpaid bigots.

Thank you, Mr. Baez, for the link to your FAQ. I read it, but since October, 2014 (when the FAQ was written), it appears that there has been nothing done to alleviate the traffic situation. My concern is not the wait for the train arms to go back up, but the fact that the light on Lamar is not fixed to let more traffic through immediately after the train goes by. Some mornings, during rush hour, the southbound traffic on Lamar gets backed up almost to 183. Isn't there an urban planning committee who can evaluate traffic signals and adjust them as needed to keep traffic flowing efficiently? I know this was done at the Guadalupe/51st Street intersection, so I don't understand why nothing can be done at Airport and Lamar.
