  1. This isn't a real rate reduction. It's an EZ Tag discount. When I first heard about this rate reduction plan, they made it sound like it was an overall price reduction on HCTRA roads, not only limited to only EZ Tag users. In fact, they only said it would apply to drivers of two axle vehicles, and mentioned nothing about it being only for EZ Tag users. See https://communityimpact.com/houston/spring-klein/transportation/2023/02/02/harris-county-commissioners-authorize-10-toll-road-rate-reduction-free-ez-tag-program/ and https://communityimpact.com/houston/bay-area/transportation/2023/01/25/hctra-proposes-to-cut-toll-rates-by-10-offer-ez-tags-at-no-cost/ That sucks for those who have TxTags, NTTX tags, or out of state toll tags from Oklahoma or Kansas after over a decade of touting interoperability with other agency tags.
  2. That bridge was built in 1959. There used to be a plaque in the median stating that, but it was removed some time ago. Instead of replacing it during Project Brays, retaining walls were added underneath to widen the bayou there.
  3. The project that the sign is referring to is the demolition itself
  4. Ted Cruz: hold my beer (beer gets thrown back at the Astros parade)
  5. What will ultimately replace the coffee pot building? I work at the county and some of my coworkers say a dog park is coming, but I doubt that. The Plan Downtown Report from 2017 recommends developing a North Downtown Transit Center at that location, but I haven't seen any concrete plans either way.
  6. St. Arnold will be spared https://www.txdot.gov/content/dam/project-sites/nhhip/docs/nhhip-segment-3-i-10-rollplot-ph-2-2.pdf
  7. I'm guessing it'll be an unsigned I-145 or Business Spur I-45 I thought COH owned Allen Parkway? I can't find it in TxDOT's files.
  8. If SJL becomes mayor (🥴), she might push to stop this since it could take land from Memorial Park. She helped stop the proposed West Loop widening in the 90s that would've taken some land from Memorial Park.
  9. The closures already occurred back in 2020-21. There's 32 locations left now. The only Luby's downtown I'm aware of is the Luby's Etc. in the basement of the Civil Courthouse at 201 Caroline. It's only open from like 7am to 3pm M-F, and they serve smaller portions at concession prices. I'm not even sure it's under the Luby's umbrella since Luby's sold its Culinary Contract Services Business to Pappas in 2021.
  10. This thread went full Robert Moses so quick!
  11. 311 is generally very responsive when it comes to replacing road signs. I have to give them kudos for that.
  12. She may get one already from being a former municipal judge and also District D Councilwoman in the late 80s and early 90s.
  13. One of the mansions is now a business park. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/trending/article/houston-suburb-manvel-mansion-real-estate-pearland-17858646.php?utm_source=marketing&utm_medium=copy-url-link&utm_campaign=article-share&hash=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuaG91c3RvbmNocm9uaWNsZS5jb20vbmV3cy9ob3VzdG9uLXRleGFzL3RyZW5kaW5nL2FydGljbGUvaG91c3Rvbi1zdWJ1cmItbWFudmVsLW1hbnNpb24tcmVhbC1lc3RhdGUtcGVhcmxhbmQtMTc4NTg2NDYucGhw&time=MTY4MDQ3MTI0ODUyOA==&rid=YjcyYjExN2ItNDRhNS00YzM0LTk2NjktNzVlMWU0MWI5MGEz&sharecount=Mg==
