You really see two aspects of transportation

philosophy taking place. One, individuals that
believe in a neighborhood, that they live in a fivemile radius and thats where they spend most of
their time. Then, a lot of individuals believe they
live in a region, a place called Dallas-Fort Worth,
which is the fourth-largest population in the

We can reclaim this project and win back the

publics trust by moving forward with the park and
flood control improvements.

We are in a unique position. This decision can
be made with hindsight. So much has changed.
It's time to oppose this tollroad.

I have changed my mind and now confess
publicly my opposition to building this highway.

Jerry Allen

I supported the toll road. But now, as a public
citizen, I do not. There are three reasons why.
First, no matter what anyone tells you, this is not
the road we voted on. It is wider and bigger and
more intrusive.
Second, we were told that the toll road was
needed to make possible the other amenities in
the Trinity River Corridor. We now know that is not
true. In fact, the toll road has become an
impediment to the other things we want to do.
And, third, were smarter now than when we
approved this road. Weve learned more about

inner-city highways and the damage they do.

My personal preference is a tunnel, says District

5s rep. I am not talking about nine miles of
tunnel. I am talking about from Dead Mans Curve
as the beginning point to whatever eclipses the
levee, maybe three miles at the most, then you
pick back up above ground. You would have a
little visual relief.

Its the urban planning equivalent of the Iraq War:

a bad idea managed behind closed doors into
something far uglier than was sold to the public,
and with potentially devastating long-term

A fricking highway is not the thing to do.

"If you need a highway parallel to an existing
highway to relieve it, you're failing at city building."
"To continue the improvement of the Design
District and surrounding areas, we need to be
focusing on improving demand to live and work
there. Putting a highway between the
neighborhood and the amenity of the Trinity River
does the opposite."

I am not so wedded to it that I wont reconsider it,

if there is an outcry from the city.

A look at the picture to your right gives you some

sense. What a lovely afternoon it will be along this
little lake with the road looming over your head
and cars clipping by one after the other. If the
raging noise isnt enough, then the wafting smell
of eau du highway should be intoxicating. No,
seriously, gas fumes are intoxicating. Bad
hangover too.

The Trinity river provides drinking water for
millions of people across the state--about 30% of
all Texans. Here in Dallas we have a long and
shameful history of treating the Trinity poorly, but
now we have an opportunity to protect it and
integrate it into what could be one of the largest
urban greenbelts in Texas.

Part of the reason you are not seeing enough
shift is you are not offering a high enough level of
amenities in your center city. Youve got a couple
of chess pieces on the board, but you are not
playing a full game yet. Now, Houston has figured
this out and is out to beat the pants off of Dallas.

Dallas has accomplished much by looking to the
future with innovation and vision. Lets not stop

now by grasping at transportation solutions from

the past.

The people who want the road have won every
vote since 1998. So why isnt the road built
already? Its because its infeasible without a
huge public subsidy and always was. The city sold
the citizens a road it couldnt build.

Lying is the important issue even more
important than the project itself because the
people who lied then will continue to lie in the
future. The important reality is that they are liars.
They were liars when this project started. They are
still liars. They will continue to lie about this project
and about anything else when they think lies will
get them what they want.

I oppose anything but a lower speed, landscaped,
meandering four lane parkway. Which it is clear
would never get built with todays road proponents
pushing for high speed and six lanes - and the
Corps all but declaring no landscaping will be
permitted. The window to have built what Sandy
and I supported in the compromise has closed.
