Weatherford Democrat Article on the Trans Texas Corridor from TTC Meeting this week

Thought this part was interesting in particular, since it's been my impression that as soon as TXDOT goes through the motions of holding public hearings (yeah, public hearings that are one way, no questions asked of the presenters), they can go on to complete their application for fed money.

Because the project is still in preliminary stages, a future time line associated with the Trans-Texas Corridor remains speculative and unclear.

The Federal Highway Administration is expected to approve Tier 1, the project’s current phase, by the spring of next year. Tier II would provide a footprint dictating where the actual concrete would go, Lopez said, and would take two to five years to complete. After that, he said right-of-way acquisition could begin and then detailed planning.

“You wont see dirt move for a while... it could be, more or less, 10 years,” he said.

Heiss said he didn’t think any land acquisition or construction would take place any sooner than five years from now.

“Building in this corridor could be spread over many, many years,” he said. “So many I don’t even want to speculate.”

In case you didn't see, video of the public hearing comments here.
