Yet another group TALKING about roads
The DP has a story today about yet another group of people talking about how we really, really, really need roads. For about thirty (30!) years, the Meadowcreek Parkway has “been discussed.”
“Construction projects such as the Meadowcreek Parkway, the eastern connector and the Southern Parkway have taken on near-mythological status as they are perennially discussed, debated and delayed.”
“The primary holdup, most parties agree, is state transportation money, which has been delivered to local governments in smaller amounts every budget cycle.”
Not necessarily. The money was in the coffers at one time. Public outcry by a powerful, vocal minority has stopped progress in its’ tracks each and every time progress is nigh.
Here is an interesting article about the difficulties facing the doomed-before-it-was-built Buck Mountain Reservoir.
