The Trans-Texas Corridor

This Washington Post article examines the political implications of the Trans-Texas Corridor, which is the biggest highway project since the Interstate Highway project of the 1950s. The $184 billion, 50-year plan provides for building 4,000 miles of six high speed toll lanes for cars and trucks, six rail lines, and easements that would provide space for petroleum, natural gas and water pipelines, and electric, broadband and other telecommunications lines.

Call it "privatization" or "piratization." Whatever it is, few Texas voters knew about the Trans-Texas Corridor until recently. Few even believed such an audacious land grab was possible. Unfortunately, it is--thanks to some stealthy legislation enacted several years ago, which allowed the officials of the Texas Transportation Commission to push the project through in record time--before any one could figure out what hit them.
