Houston Gets Railroaded by Tx-DOT

The state Department of Transportation wants Texans to get “all aboard” on a proposed passenger rail line to Oklahoma. 

Tx-DOT is taking public comment on a variety of different routes, but none run through Houston.  Most of the proposals start in the Rio Grande Valley in south Texas and run to Oklahoma City. 

The southernmost proposal would start in Brownsville, passing through San Antonio, Waco, and Dallas on its way north.  Other lines would start in Corpus Christi and follow roughly the same path.
