Someone here asked me if I was going to write about the public hearing on the Trinity toll road, held yesterday by the Federal Highway Administration. Nope, I said. I’m just going to link to the relevant information and leave it at that. Frankly, I’m tired of writing about it (and I’m not the only one, eh Schutzie?). The Corps of Engineers levee report killed the toll road that the city wants to build, and the sooner the people in charge realize that, the better off we’ll all be.

So you can read about what happened here ("Tuesday’s hearing made clear that [the Federal Highway Administration] won’t issue a decision until it knows more about the corps’ concerns about the levees, and how the toll road could impact their integrity") and here ("In the not-too-distant future, the [North Texas Tollway Authority] will pull the plug on this sucker, probably right after we learn that the Calatrava bridge cannot achieve erection").
