Full Show: Harvey Two Years Later, And Time Spent In Traffic (Aug. 23, 2019)

On Friday’s Houston Matters: How much time we spend in traffic each year, the effects of Harvey two years later, and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week’s news.

On Friday’s Houston Matters: Commuters here spent an average of 75 hours in traffic congestion in 2017. That’s up from up from 43 hours in 2000, according to a new report. We learn what else the study had to say about commuter times.

Plus, as this weekend marks two years since Harvey made landfall, area officials hear public reaction to state and regional flood planning. We learn what was said and discuss ways the region’s economy and arts community still feel the impact of the storm two years later.

And our rotating panel of non-experts breaks down The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week’s news.
