The Texas Department of Transportation on Wednesday will announce that it has officially selected the "no-build" option for the Trans Texas Corridor, effectively putting an end to the planning process for the hotly contested proposal to build toll roads, rail lines and utilities across the state, an official said.


Well those who believe that the trans-tx corridor was a major plan in the NWOs plan, it dosent seem that they are going to be able to accomplish that anytime soon. I remember in the video End Game there was a major segment about Texas and the highway system and all that about being the plan for a north american union but this has gone down pretty quick.

Pftt, NWO plan or not, our freaking highway/transporation system could really use an upgrade.

Personally, also as a DFW resident I'm getting pretty sick of all the toll road projects. The tolls have gone up, they never disappear, the toll booth operators lost their jobs to cameras, and they plannning a new one south of Dallas. Aren't 3 enough? Bleccchhh.

Also speaking of Texas, you'll never get that spineless waste of a man in the governors office to commit to anything sensible. He's a fed lapdog.

Trans Texas Corridor? Glad its off the books....for now. It'll be bavck though. Someone wants to get paid for doing nothing some more.

Who gets paid is what the problem is... damn, i never thought id be the one to say this but "capitalism" has undergone a transformation in the last 20 years, or more and has gotten out of hand.
I grew up in Dallas but dont live there anymore, however i know the tolls there and Houston are freaking ridiculous.
I know some of the tolls in Dallas were supposed to expire AFTER the road was paid for, however they have been "bought" out since then and they keep adding on more $$$.
Capitalism isnt the problem, greed is. Contract extensions, finance laws etc.. they all need to be overhauled.

Yeah unfortunately they have it linked with RFID in Austin, where you can blow through toll roads without giving a damn. They will kindly send you the balance in the mail. It's located in the new stickers and possibly new licenses.

The Bushway started out at 50cents a gate, In just the last couple of years its popped up to $1.28 per gate, higher if don't have a tolltag. And there's no gate operators anymore. Its disgusting.

Brings back old memories of living in lewisville....... I remember working in Richardson and driving that trek back and forth ... it was a wild ride when traffic was moving .... everyone driving 85 in a 55 zone bumper to bumper distances from each other.

so yehhhhhh when there was a wreck it is always 5+ car involvement LOL

I used to live about 60 miles SE of Dallas, near a lake, while working in Addison Tx.
My commute took me all the way around LBJ (I635) and it was miserable.
It took me 30 min to get to the loop and another 1.5 hours to get around the loop.
So glad those days are over with.
