The Texas Tribune: Firm Proposes Private Toll Road Northeast of Dallas

This was in today’s Texas Tribune:
Firm Proposes Private Toll Road Northeast of Dallas, by Aman Batheja.
“The Texas Turnpike Corporation of Dallas wants to build a private toll road in an area northeast of Dallas. If built, the road would be the only private toll road in the state and one of the only such facilities in the country.”
There is probably a good reason this model isn’t replicated anywhere else in the nation.
Please stay abreast of the facts on the NCTCOG Blacklands Corridor website and attend the meetings in order to get the latest updates. Make sure you stay involved with your emails to your local Precinct Commissioners, your County Judge, the NCTCOG, circulating the petition, and filling out the NCTCOG Blacklands Corridor Survey.
Make sure your voice is heard because it does count, not writing or attending the meetings and speaking your mind is the same as saying yes to the toll road.
For those of you in support of a toll road, please comment about why you support it.
