Transcript Construction was completed on the new Oblisks at the intersection of 1-45 and Cullen Boulevard in the fail. The $800,000 project raised many questions, especially during economic hard times. Only months later, construction on 1-45 eliminated the Cullen exit. Commuters now reach the University via Calhoun Boulevard. As they pass by on the massive elevated freeway, the oblisks seem belittled. What the future holds in store. The new Alvin Freeway is supposed to extend out of the $26 million 1-45 project sometime in '88. It should run somewhat parallel to the railroad tracks on the east side of the campus and head in a more southwardly direction than 1-45. It will eventually meet State Highway 35 in Alvin. According to plans, Entrance 1 will extend east to the new freeway and so will Wheeler, making that the new front to the University. So what then for the new Oblisks? The DMZ continues to expand. The University is surrounded by buffers that somewhat resemble a demilitarized zone. This keeps the University isolated from the ailing communities surrounding it. On the north side, wide open fields separate the campus from Elgin to 1-45. The university acquired and leveled virtually everything, leaving only the strip of fast food restaurants which the University holds leases on. To the east is the railroad tracks and more wide open fields between the planned Alvin Freeway and Calhoun. Khean Taing practices on the UH fields that border the Third Ward. Photo by Mark Lacy. 232
