Freeway expansion challenge

I've written several times about the plan to widen I-10, known as the Katy Freeway, here in Houston. This has attracted the attention of some folks who agree with me that there are quite a few questions which should be addressed before we rush off to pave vast stretches of west Houston. In addition to discussing issues such as the impact of added pollution and noise, the fact that rail was never adequately explored, the potential for flooding, and the likely bottleneck at the junction of I-10 and Loop 610, they will be exploring the possibility of litigation. The meeting is Wednesday, April 24. If you're in Houston and would like to know more, drop me a note and I'll pass along the full details.
