Debate over SH 249 Tollway Extension Continues

Houston Public Media reports that some residents and officials want TxDOT to undertake the entire SH 249 tollway extension project. However, Judge Craig Doyal defends the recent decision made by Montgomery County commissioners to fund and manage one segment of the project, telling the news site, “We can use any excess revenue that the project created to address free road issues in Montgomery County. Or a future Commissioners Court once the debt was retired could choose to eliminate the tolls altogether.”
