Places generally along the South Freeway (I-45), and south of the Ship Channel, including Clear Lake, Deer Park, Freindswood, the Hobby Area, League City, Pasadena, Santa Fe, South Houston, and Texas City.
If you’re observant, you will see that the signage puts this as a replacement of the Link Lee Mansion… (see bottom left - street on the bottom of the screen appears to be Sul Ross)
I sure hope I’m wrong.
pretty specific question.
there's a mayor of a pretty populous city that this interstate runs through, which has a lot of neighborhoods in it, that has come out against the approved design of the project.
there's a judge of a pretty populous county that this interstate runs through, which also has a lot of neighborhoods in it, that has also come out against the approved design, has even gone so far as to sue TXDoT over the entire affair.
the National DoT has issued many statements which can be characterized as being against the project.
but you want letters from officials that represent specific neighborhood associations?
heck, based on the previous 2 pages of arguments, can we even consider that a letter penned by the president of a neighborhood association is what the residents of that association want?
^seems about right. Heaven forbid public infrastructure not look like hell.
I guess that is one of the positives the Great Depression gave all of us: Public works and infrastructure that is something to be proud of, not only in its design but also the longevity of so many of those old projects.
for centerpoint to spend millions of dollars on a relocation or beautification project like this, the cost would ultimately be approved by the texas public utilities commission and end up on all of our electricity bills. i will generalize and say we tend to get the ugly/cheap option in texas compared to more progressive locales.
