  • Re: U.S. 290 Will Have Single HOV Lane on New Freeway Once Completed in Late 2017

    What idiot in TxDOT made this decision?

  • @WR I think it was HCTRA’s decision to pull out of the project

  • @drew j Specifically, I think it had to do with Prop. 1 funding.

  • Drew’s correct. The HOV will be moved to the Hempstead Tollway once completed by HCTRA so whatever they’re doing on 290 right now is just throwing money away as a stop-gap measure. But I’d note that probably every single decision made by TxDOT is imposed by budget constraints.
