Super Highway Proposal

Texas is proposing a super highway form Oklahoma to Mexico. This highway which would be one quarter of a mile wide would basically parallel IH 35. Pictured is the proposed route. The dark blue I think is first choice and the lighter blue is second choice. Those of you that know where the Poth ranches are located can see that the second choice is a bit scarry. The road being 1/4 mile wide will take 160 acres per mile. Now you understand what I mean by scarry. I hear the state plans to have its own service stations, eateries, etc. There will be a meeting in Atascosa County on Aug. 3rd. in the Pleasanton School cafeteria. If you have land anywhere close to the proposed sites you might want to attend.
