West Loop Project Public Meeting May 29

The Cameron County Regional Mobility Authority will host a public meeting May 29 to discuss the proposed West Loop.

The meeting takes place from 6-8 p.m. at the UTB-TSC ITEC Campus, 301 Mexico Blvd.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss and receive comments on the ongoing environmental study, the proposed alternatives and the design of the proposed West Loop project. This proposed transportation project would be located between the B&M Bridge at the U.S.-Mexico border and the US 77/83 expressway, a distance of about eight miles.

The proposed facility would consist of a tolled four-lane controlled-access roadway with interchanges and connections at strategic locations, and grade separated intersections for limited street crossings in Brownsville.

The public meeting will be in an open-house format. Maps of the project area and other displays will be available for review and comment. Verbal or written comments may be presented at the meeting, or written comments may be mailed after the public meeting to Ms. Erika Salazar, C/O HNTB Corporation, 1805 Ruben Torres Sr. Blvd, Suite A-15, Brownsville, TX 78521. Comments may also be faxed to (956) 554-7509 or e-mailed to All coments received by June 9 will become part of the public meeting record.

For more information about this project, call CCRMA Coordinator Pete Sepulveda at (956) 982-5414.

You see, tolls are a comin'!

Hey ain't it odd that Pete Sepulveda is both County Administrator and the RMA's cooridinator?

Hey too, do you think the college is going to fight this road way as it uses eminent domain to build its tollway around the ITEC campus?

Won't the tollway "divide" cultures (those who have money to spend on the toll and those who don't)?

That's right, they won't complain because ITEC is named after a person who used to own B&M.

Regional Mobility Authorities are no more, and no less, extension arms of Governor Goodhair's desire to make toll roads as common in Texas as they are in the Northeast.

Dannenbaum and people like him are up to their armpits in every one of them that they can sally up to.

I think that about covers it.

Pete is a smart guy who is likely pushing the traffic flows in a specific direction.

I don't know if the current plan is the best, but something needs to be done to coordinate flow.

Maybe this is it or maybe they are putting pressure on B&M to sell?
