Thank you for the fyi regarding the Tuesday
evening NTTA meeting at City Hall.
I only asked one question during the meeting,
and that was:
"Who is your customer?"
Their answer was that research showed there would be
100,000 cars on this boondoggle every day.
I asked again. "Who is
This time I got a rather vague answer about the people on the south side
of downtown, who work along the I-35/Stemmons
Corridor, being able it get to places they work, like Parkland
Hospital faster. I
think they also said something about people from the
north side getting into downtown. Their answer was
hard to follow.
The proposed rout of this toll road is from the 183/I-35
split (just south of some of your favorite night
clubs at the north end) to Hwy
175 to the south.
It seems strange that an
expressway that is supposed to relieve congestion
along the I-35 Stemmons
Corridor and the I-35/I-30 Mixmaster
doesn't put one car onto either I-35
South, or I-30
East or West.
If I ever move to Gun
Barrel City, I'm really
going to use the heck out of that bypass when I go north to, will I'm not
sure where I'll be going, but I'm sure I'll be using it...
