We begin this morning, like last, with talk of tearing out another freeway -- only this one's a done deal. On the other side is a brief video just posted by the folks at Spanish road-builder Ferrovial and its subsidiary Cintra, in which the majority owners of the about-to-commence LBJ Express redo show-and-tell an audience about the managed toll lanes about to be sunk beneath 635, which is expected to take five years. For those following along at home, the info's not necessarily new, but it's the presentation that counts. Or maybe you just don't like realidad aumentada with subtitles.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
