Fort Worth - San Antonio rail would be nice.
And eventually to Monterrey would be even better. From what I have read they are keeping a close eye on us to see if something does get built and if so what type so that they can be compatible to connect them.Fort Worth - San Antonio rail would be nice.
For the life of me, I can't tell exactly where this interchange is located. Perhaps it is Hwy 90 coming from the west side going eastbound into San Antonio?
The private company developing a high-speed rail line between Dallas and Houston told federal officials today it wants to focus on just one possible route.
Texas Central Railway is recommending building the line on what’s called “the utility corridor,” which is the orange line on the map. That route includes a large amount of right of way already being used for utilities throughout the state. It was also focusing on a route alongside freight lines.
It actually completes Loop 375 by linking I-10 with the Border Highway. the elevated section will take traffic south of I-10 and downtown and move traffic east to the bridges. (route in blue below)Dumb question, what purpose does the downtown-sunland park segment of the planned Border West expressway serve when it is almost directly adjacent to I-10?
Does I-10 actually have significant traffic for enough of the day that a reasonable person would pay a toll?
I was up there before Xmas and was amazed at the amount of road construction going on near downtown.
A local design firm has unveiled renderings of what an eventual new East El Paso freeway may look like once completed. Plans were revealed by the Texas Department of Transportation in 2013 that show a miles-long stretch of Montana Avenue becoming an expressway east of Yarbrough Drive.
Neomedia Design Group of El Paso posted several images online depicting multiple major intersections along the freeway, including at George Dieter Drive, Saul Kleinfeld Drive, and Rich Beem Boulevard.
Major interchanges will include direct connector ramps at Loop 375/Joe Battle Boulevard and Yarbrough Drive/Global Reach Drive.
That as well as the fact that for decades El Paso saw little new freeway infrastructure investment. That became one rallying point for those that promote El Paso seceding from Texas. The state legislature finally came around 10 years ago and now it's raining freeways in El Paso.What is the main reason for the construction of all the freeways in El Paso? Is it to relieve traffic off of I-10 or to serve other fast growing areas of the city?
