Trans Texas Corridor - Giant Concrete Spider Network

The Trans Texas Corridor is an enormous highway/railway/utilityway now in broder public discussion. It originated several years ago. Some describe it as the greatest economic boom ever, others describe it as the monster from hell. Some accounts give it 4,000 miles, with a width of 1,200 feet, using 146 acres per mile. It will have no frontage, very little access like an Interstate. While it would be an awesome transportation system, it will also have other major effects on agriculture, history, land development, etc.
