The Katy Corridor Coalition has taken its first steps towards challenging the proposed widening of I-10 west of Loop 610. The notice, which you can read here, focuses on the lack of any high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes, which allegedly violates the federally-approved clean air plan for Houston. There are plenty of other concerns, such as noise, flood control, and the need for rail, but this is a good place to start
Naturally, the cronies who pushed through this plan pooh-pooh the opposition:
County Commissioner Steve Radack, in whose precinct the freeway lies, called it “a shame that a few people would get together and conspire to inconvenience hundreds of thousands of people because of their own selfish beliefs.”
Funny, I was thinking exactly the same thing. I have a proposal for you, Steve: Let’s use the patented Tom DeLay Transportation Solution and vote on this. If it’s good enough for light rail, it’s good enough for the Katy Freeway.
