A new study out of the Transportation Institute at Texas
A&M argues that the proposed Trans-Texas Corridor won't meet the state's
future highway needs, and will depend on the wrong kind of funding.
The study concludes that - even with the Corridor's toll
roads - there will still be another $44 billion worth of highway construction
necessary to handle the state's growing population.
The study also claims new highway construction can be paid
for through existing fuel taxes, without imposing tolls.
