Another Attempt to Stop TX 45SW Fails. CTRMA Will Start Construction Tomorrow.

Austin American-Statesman reports, “A three-judge appellate panel on Friday [November 4] denied a request for an injunction in the Texas 45 Southwest case, clearing the way for construction on the tollway to begin next week. The decision came hours after a hearing in the federal lawsuit, in which lawyers for the environmentalists opposing the road had asked the judges to intervene.” Mike Heiligenstein, executive director of the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority, tells the paper, “Our contractor will be on the ground Tuesday with equipment beginning construction.”
