TTC-69 TxDOT will announce they will axe TTC-69 this week says the Houston Chronicle.
Isn't it amazing how a Sunset Review can get an agency's attention?
UPDATE: I've also heard that new Fed regulations would force them to jump through hoops they can't jump through. Isn't it might "white" of them to kill something they just can't build?
Opportunist politicos far and wide have already put out early press releases, in hopes that they could be seen as the dragon slayer. Man, I hate politics. Pathetic and expected every single time.
It's to late for TxDOT, they can't chew enough limbs off to get out of the trap they got themselves into. Lawmakers and the public smell blood for the upcoming Sunset Review. Everyone needs to go to the public hearing July 15th. TxDOT, Gov. Perry and Sen. Watson still plan to toll Austin freeways using diverted tax dollars. More to come.
