Reservoir of Capacity

Reservoir of Capacity is the story of one man’s obsessive struggle to right the horrendous traffic problem along one stretch of freeway in Los Angeles.

Mark Watson is a civil engineer who specializes in traffic management. He’s been assigned the task of fixing the traffic problem where the two most congested freeways in the world converge. His assignment turns into an obsession, and he begins to loose touch with the rest of his life as his marriage falls apart, the police arrest him, and he looses sight of the practical limitations of the assignment. But the work he’s doing is brilliant. His ideas will revolutionize traffic management—if he can only get other people to see it.

Reservoir of Capacity is the story of a brilliant man who drowns in his own genius.
