  1. Does anyone know the progress on this extension? Have they started construction? I came across this quote on a developer's website, so looks like the community is planning around the extension: "The Westpark Tollway is currently being planned to extend westward from the Grand Parkway to just west of FM 1463" http://www.landadvisors.com/tamarronlakes/
  2. I noticed a lot of the freeways are being re-striped with black and white striping.....what is the reasoning for that?
  3. Post Oak......between Bellfort and Highway 90, there's hardly any room for a freeway. They are going to have to tear down a lot of homes and businesses for that. Any opposition to it so far?
  4. I notice that an area that is continously slow on 290, is between Hollister and Beltway 8......and I think it is mostly due to the exit and entrance ramps not having an acceleration or continous lane. Look at this picture: This would probably solve 25% of the traffic issues on 290 (at least in that section of it), until they completely overhaul the freeway. I don't know why they didn't do this with Katy Freeway either (Between Gessner and Wirt Rd) Any thoughts?
  5. New Mexico and Oklahoma have parts that are 75, as well as I-10 between San Antonio and El Paso.......I don't see why it should be any different in other parts of Texas. Reports have concluded that high speed limits don't cause higher accidents.
  6. Anyone heard about this? It's news to me: http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/04/473.asp
  7. So THAT's why they put a rush on that segment
  8. I think one of the plans is to convert Hempstead Rd. (old 290) into toll lanes.......like they did with Westpark Rd.
  9. no, but I want to send these pics to them, but they don't update the site as often anymore.
  10. I read that Segment I-2 of the Grand Parkway was under construction around Baytown, so I took some pictures while I was in the area: This is just past BUS 146, heading east on "SH-99". They are starting to clear way for the westbound lanes: Continuing east, you can see they are making more progress: This is on FM 1405, looking east at the clearing for westbound lanes: again, on FM 1405, but looking west: heading east, looking at an overpass under construction: close up of bridges: at this point, the parkway curves and heads north towards I-10:
  11. Just curious....are you the Author of Houston Freeways?
  12. Well I think removing them from some freeways totally is the only way. By having Trucks concentrated in the right lanes, it disrupts the flow of traffic entering and exiting the freeway......which eventually slows traffic in all lanes because people are trying to get around the trucks.
