Trans Texas Corridor- TXDot website shows that Land Grab Fears Are the # One Response in Polls

24 January 2007 at 3:02:24 PM

A recent poll posted at, shows that visitors to the site consider land acquisition as the most pressing issue needing to be addressed regarding the planned Trans-Texas Corridor.

Visitors to the site chose acquisition of property by an overwhelming 64 percent of the vote, with 14,280 votes.

Yes, and why shouldn't it be? Is it RIGHT that people's property is being taken for a TOLL ROAD to be run by a PRIVATE FOREIGN COMPANY? I don't think so and the fact that the Texas Legislature is looking at this again says that even the legislators (except Rick Perry) realize it was a sneaky mistake.

Here's more info on the proposed loop, also known as the Doughnut.

Also included in the master plan is the southern section of Loop 9 around Dallas Fort Worth, a project that has been under study since the 1960s.

A definitive route between Hillsboro and Loop 9 has not been determined but early plans suggest a possible route through Ellis County, between Waxahachie and Ennis, a route through the Highway 360 corridor, or a route to the west of Johnson County.

In July, the Ellis County Commissioners joined the North Central Texas Council of Governments in support of a resolution to move the corridor from the eastern half of the county to the Highway 360 and Loop 9 corridors.

Ellis County, along with the cities of Carrollton, Cedar Hill, Dallas, Duncanville and Lancaster, have each passed resolutions recently supporting the Highway 360 alternative.

The court passed a second resolution in mid-November to encourage the Texas Legislature to re-examine the legislation surrounding the development and construction of the TTC.
