  1. Sorry, but that's the stupidest goddamn name for a shopping center I've ever heard.
  2. Sign along the highway says the southbound connector will be open on October 2
  3. Still closed, as of yesterday. Quite frustrating - there hasn't been much progress on those new signals at Dillards St in a while.

  5. I anxiously await the day that the awkward left lane entrance ramp becomes a normal awkward right lane entrance ramp! :-)
  6. Houston TranStar page shows construction-related lane closures in the area wrapping up either June 30th or July 12th, so it looks like only another few weeks! http://traffic.houstontranstar.org/layers/layers_ve.html?x=29.8757&y=-95.412160&z=15&lc=true
  7. Hey everyone - hoping y'all can provide some advice to me. Last week I was backing out of a parking space at work (on private property), when a taxi came flying by behind me. I hit his passenger side. I have a witness saying he was speeding thru the lot (10mph limit). I was happy enough to trade insurance info and move on, but he insisted on having HPD show up. Long story short, HPD showed up and wrote me a citation for the accident ("failure to back up safely") Since then, everyone I've spoken to (including my insurance and the body shop) have been SHOCKED that HPD wrote me a citation on private property. Now I have a court date in May, and I plan on going in and speaking to the judge. But my question is - what is my best course of action? I can't say to the judge "you should throw out this ticket because everyone says 'not cool, man!'", but I don't know if it was 100% legal for him to ticket me or not. Should I hire a ticket lawyer? Any recommendations?
  8. There was talk mid-last year about the empty lot bounded by Crosstimbers, N Main, Yale, and E 45th street, just East of GO/OF. People on the local Facebook pages swore that they heard from the horse's mouth that it was a done deal, but you know how people on the internet are :-) Just measured it on Google Maps - 27,000 sq meters, just over 6 acres. So who knows. I'm sure the moment the rumor started, the price for the lot shot up.
  9. As a former owner of a Tricon home, I can assure you, this statement is full of $h1t.
  10. Barf. If they're advertising the number of fast food joints and dollar stores nearby, I don't have high hopes for good stuff going in.
  11. People keep telling me Hardy was supposed to be a free road once the tolls paid for themselves. Is that true? Surely it paid for itself by now...
