Here is MY PROBLEM with Toll Roads:
1. 820 - Currently has 2 free lanes that go through NRH's. They want to make toll lanes, so they are planning (If I'm reading it correctly), to expand the freeway to 3 lanes but to convert two of the lanes (each way) to toll lanes. So if I'm understanding it correctly, 1 free lane, 2 toll lanes. Thats a bunch of horse shit.
2. 635, expand the freeway and make the lanes toll.... again horse shit.
3. 121, made it a toll road... again horse shit.
Why are these problems in my opinion? They have been paid with tax payers money. They were built to be freeways... AS IN FREE. I don't have a problem with the Tollway or George Bush because from the outset they were built to be TOLL ROADS.
Now with the Obama Bucks, Tex Dot wants to rebuild 635/121/114 interchange and make it a FUCKING TOLL ROAD. They also state it will be the most expensive toll rate in the State. WTF?
You know when I lived in the North East, I could drive 300 freaking miles on a toll road for $5.00 --- To Drive from one side of Dallas to the other costs you $5.00 or so. Hell if you get on some of these Toll Roads and exit 1-2 miles down the road, it can cost you $1.00
If they are going to build TOLL ROADS everywhere, fucking remove the Gas Tax since I'm paying for it with tolls and REDUCE my freaking tags each year.
