  1. High Speed Rail / Texas Triangle

    From the Texas Transportation Code, Title 5, Subititle C, Chapter 112, Subchapter A https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/TN/htm/TN.112.htm Subtitle D with similar laws relating to an interurban railway https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/TN/htm/TN.131.htm It's not clear, but it seems that if they don't use the land for a railroad it's supposed to revert back to the landowner
  2. High Speed Rail / Texas Triangle

    I believe they are trying only for easements that could only be used for a railroad - which would mean it's still their land unless the railroad is built, correct? If the railroad does fail, and you don't want the government to bail it out, then tell your representatives not to bail it out. If they do, either the public supports it or will vote them out.
  3. Any issues

    I'd like this post but that doesn't work so moo

  6. East River - KBR Site Puchased by Midway

    It would tie that whole east side of downtown in the way the red line ties midtown and downtown together
  7. I'm glad that it's going to be renovated instead of demolished, but how will this survive the next big flood?
  8. East River - KBR Site Puchased by Midway

    The proposed streetcar they mention...proposed by who?
  9. Houston skyline featured on a toy

    The Houston skyline seems appropriate for a construction crane toy
  10. I sometimes wonder what they get from that. Not being a civil engineer, I would take a sample, look at it, and say "Yep, that's dirt"
  11. Option 4: Go the opposite direction on 45 to begin with and get on 610 and go to that interchange because I'm sure they wouldn't work on 2 interchanges at once that would hinder congestion relief (really though half of 610's major interchanges are under construction at once)
