    The only way I see possible for the Killeen/Ft. Hood traffic (even after the addition of more lanes on 190) is for Ft. Hood put the units on alternate schedules. It is time to change the way soldiers work just like they change the way soldiers fight. Everyone is trying to get on and off post at the same time. My suggestion for Ft. Hood would be Unit A PT at 0630, Work Call 0900 and COB 1700. Unit B PT at 1000, Work Call 1230 and COB at 2030. Unit C PT at PT at 1430, Work Call at 1700 and COB at 0200. I know this is not perfect but the point is not to have 20 or 30 or 40,000 people trying to get to and from the same place at the same time. It might be a good idea to put some units on different work days i.e.... Unit A work Mon- Fri, Unit B work Wed-Sun and Unit C work Fri-Tues. It is not perfect the point is to lessen some of the congestion. Civilian's schedule probably won't change much, but the way it is now short of making 190 6 lanes or more on each side all the way to 35 and widening Clear Creek, Trimmier, WS Young, Racier, and Bus 190 to at least 3 lanes each way, the congestion will not go a way. One more thing is to encourage the use of mass transit with park & ride or car pooling.
