NYPD cops suing over NYPD cops' demonstration tactics

Toll road plan in high gear
Companies are scouring the country for the chance to build a highway and purchase the right to charge motorists for driving on it.
REGARDING 281 TOLL SCHEME
Bexar County Commissioners Lyle Larson and Tommy Adkisson complain that our local Texas Senators and Representatives have applied NO pressure to the Texas Dep't of Transportation to abandon the toll road scheme in favor of simply adding a lane each way and putting overpasses at the four traffic-jamming intersections north of Loop 1604 on Highway 281.
If you contact your state rep about this, maybe they will start to pay attentiion to what the voting public wants done on 281— and overwhelmingly, it ain't a big toll road.
Please contact your state rep and tell him or her to order TxDOT to can the toll road scheme, and return to the originally-approved plan for overpasses and one extra lane each direction.
Cmsr Larson says that plan was approved - and FUNDED! - in 2001, but in 2004 TxDOT took that $40M and tossed it into the Toll Road kitty.
