S.M. Wright's "Dead Man's Curve" to Stay That Way For At Least Another Five Years

This morning, the city council's Trinity River Corridor Project Committee is getting an update on efforts to straighten out the so-called Dead Man's Curve that is the S.M. Wright Freeway, a project that's been underway for well over a year. And, as you may recall, council member Carolyn Davis told her constituents way back when that the only way Wright was going to me made right was if they voted to keep the Trinity toll road inside the levees. Which is why this line, at the very end up the briefing documents, may be the most important sentence in the whole update this morning: Construction on S.M. Wright won't begin till at least 2014 and possible as late as 2016 because the redo is "dependent on Trinity Parkway construction first." Till then, will the drawings do?
