  • A super-tunnel underneath the Katy Freeway? So I-10 will be renovated yet again? I’m all for it – traffic is a mess…

  • anon22,

    If a proposal like this would go through, it would use tunnel boring machines.

    The template is the SMART facility in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This project use a toll road in the tunnel to offset the cost. When the tunnel is opened for flood waters the road is closed to traffic.

  • @anon22- the cheapo powers that be @ the county and city will NEVER go for something like this. Bring in the Dutch- they KNOW about dealing with subsidence and flooding !!!
