Horrendous traffic reported Tuesday evening

Traffic is much more congested than usual Tuesday as Austinites head home in the rain, and drivers should expect to spend an extra 20 to 45 minutes than normal on the road.

Traffic reporter Joe Taylor, who reports on traffic for several Austin radio stations, said this is extreme, even for Austin.

Google Maps shows that all our major roadways are more congested than usual during rush hour Tuesday:
