If you’re considering a new home, there are numerous factors that might be part of your considerations. Items like location, price, amenities, nearby locations and many others will all play a role in the new homes you look into.
One that sometimes flies under the radar? Traffic. Crowding is becoming a larger and larger issue in many major metropolitan areas and even many suburbs, and heavy traffic can be a significant factor for some home buyers. With a master-planned community like Cedar Creek, however, you avoid major traffic and gridlock issues – how does this happen? Let’s take a look.
Gridlock on the Rise
There are over 250 million cars and trucks on the road in the United States alone, and by the year 2050, this number is expected to reach over 2.5 billion. The average American spends over 40 hours sitting in traffic or gridlock, and over $10 billion in fuel is lost per year just in this country from congestion. It’s abundantly clear that in many parts of the country, traffic and gridlock are major issues that cause losses of time, resources and money.
How Master-Planned Communities Help
Unlike urban cities that were often built centuries ago, master-planned communities have many more ways to limit traffic congestion. Established cities have streets and roads that have come into existence based on necessity over the years, but there’s no guarantee that this was done in a well-planned or organized manner – most big cities, in fact, are specifically unorganized.
A new home community, on the other hand, have carefully planned roadways and transportation. All transportation needs are considered in advance, and experts are included in the formation of a traffic system that allows for far more convenience and virtually no issues of gridlock.
