Traffic congestion is not only one of the most frustrating, but also one of the most talked about issues among Oviedo residents at city meetings and during election seasons, officials say.Cars and trucks inch along at an aggravatingly slow pace along Oviedo's main corridors of Mitchell Hammock Road and State Road 434 daily during rush hour, as the city's population has soared by nearly 60% over the past two decades.Oviedo leaders are working with regional transportation officials to develop a citywide mobility plan that will look at implementing ways over the next decade to move people around without widening roads.
