For North Texas, a Toll Road Penalty?

Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Dallas-Fort Worth transportation officials are worried that the state government “will effectively penalize North Texas” for answering highway expansion and improvement needs by building toll roads. “As the state prepares to portion out tax-supported funds over the next 10 years, North Texas — which has already handled its most glaring traffic problems with an estimated $14 billion investment in roads with a toll component — could see a smaller portion of tax-supported highway dollars,” the newspaper reports.
