02/19/04  Trinity Project Faux-Community Meeting

T
hank you for the fyi regarding the Tuesday evening NTTA meeting at City Hall.

I only asked one question during the meeting, and that was:

"W
ho 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 your customer?"

T
his 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 fasterI 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...

  Ward politics is the Devil's key to the soul of the city council.  It is how some council members got themselves in trouble in the past.  It is the bait that will get others in trouble in the future. 4/6/8
