Over the years, it may have seemed like the roadwork on MoPac Expressway would never come to an end. MoPac? More like WoePac.
Reddit, a popular social news forum site, understands. In a thread entitled “throwback,” users poked fun at the seemingly endless construction work that has added to Austin traffic for years. Garnering the most response was an image of bumper-to-bumper traffic and a roadway sign advertising the MoPac Improvement Project. The words “Opening Fall 2015” are seen across the top.
A commenter responded with what appears to be an updated Google Street View image of the same sign where the words across the top were replaced with “Drive Safely.” Another user quickly retorted with an obviously edited image replacing those same words with “JK Never.”
Below are a few other laughable comments:
“Throwback? Those poor people are probably still on Mopac.”
“How the holy [expletive] did google ever manage to find MoPac that empty?”
“I remember it like it was this morning.”
Hey, when it comes to Austin traffic, a little comedy can go a long way.
