TRAFFIC FLOW: A traffic management plan submitted to Austin officials Friday estimated that "about 20,000 cars and other personal vehicles carrying more than 72,000 people will descend" on next year's F1 race. In Austin, Dave Doolittle notes the plan is "not the final word on traffic control on race weekends" for the roads that lead to the Circuit of the Americas. But it "does offer more details from organizers' plans to move an estimated 120,000 people into and out of the circuit and where those people will likely park." Circuit organizers also submitted plans Friday to "widen about 3,000 feet of Elroy Road, north of the circuit, from two lanes to four lanes, including a bridge over Dry Creek" (AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN, 8/3).
