Is there a new residential toll road on the horizon?
I have posted on the Grand Parkway project that is a hot topic up where I live. Now Charles Kuffner receives word that there is another toll road being proposed, and it too would run through a residential area:
Boy, that Houston-Galveston Area Council 2025 Regional Transportation Plan sure is a gift that keeps on giving, isn't it? I've got a note from Andrea Warren, the Public Relations Committee Chair for the Oak Forest Homeowner's Association, informing me that the latest proposal is a toll road from Tomball to 610 at TC Jester, cutting through the Oak Forest neighborhood along the BNSF rail line.
Please follow the link to read all the details.
I am particularly concerned about the Harris County Toll Road Authority, which has phenomenal power to build at will, regardless of community concerns. Something needs to be done to change the way the HCTRA works.
