Hundreds of Brazos Valley residents stared the State in the eyes and said "no" to the Trans Texas Corridor. Wednesday, the State blinked.
After an outpouring of opposition at town hall meetings, including ones in Navasota, Huntsville and Waller, the Texas Department of Transportation has decided to consider only existing roadways for the I-69 corridor. That eliminates Grimes, Walker, Montgomery and Waller counties from consideration.
TxDOT says the overwhelming sentiment of the public was to focus on existing roads instead of carving new ones out of the countryside. The new route is projected to run along Highway 59 east of the Brazos Valley.
