Encouraging density is not a need, it's a want [unlike] alleviating gridlock traffic.

If density is not a necessity for long-term viability, what makes alleviating gridlock necessary? As long as there is gridlock, you know that people are willing to experience it in order to live the life they have chosen. The cost of gridlock is not born directly by the city, but only indirectly through the mechanisms by which gridlock adds cost to those who experience it --- but if gridlock exists, it must be the case that people are able to pay those costs.
