Transportation : Cintra In Tarrant Co; High speed rail?

  • Todd over at BOR has some new information up about the North Tarrant Express toll/free-way contract that was recently awarded to everyone's favorite infrastructure operator, Cintra of Spain. Originally the project was sold as adding new frontage roads, freeway capacity as well as managed lanes. However, it turns out that the managed lanes will be build first and the rest is, well, TBA which makes this less a combination project and more of a full on tollway.
  • Yet again, the idea of high speed rail enters the minds of legislators
  • Wanna know why things are so bad on our roads? It's simple... a lack of investment. Americans have been on an anti-tax consumption binge for 30 years and now we're paying the price by having to sit traffic for hours on end.
