Transcript ALcoays stopping TRAFFIC IN HOUSTON WORSENS THANKS TO CONSTRUCTION GO GO GO GO GO! Houstonians found another color, besides the green of trees and the blue of the sky, on their drive to and from everyday destinations. No matter where they were going they always saw at least one orange "Road Work Ahead" sign, multiple orange barrels blocking off streets, or orange arrows redirecting them, usually away from where they actually wanted to be. There were two major reasons for all this extra orange around town: one reason was because Houston wanted to win the bid to host the prestigious Olympic Games in 2012, and the other reason was because of the new Westpark Tollway going up. "Though closed off lanes are a hassle when trying to get to early morning classes on time, I think all the construction we have going on in the city right now will be of much value to Houstonians when it's all complete and ready to use," said sophomore pre- business major Nadia Yousuf. Houston was in competition with New York, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. to host the 2012 Olympic Games and, of course, winning the games could not have been expected without expanding, building, fixing, and upgrading the city. Federal, state, county, and city funds were used pay for the transportation and infrastructure improvements that were being made around the city. Even though Houstonians had to put up with a lot of orange signs there was no doubt that being chosen as the city for the 2012 games would definitely have put Houston, Texas The traffic on 1-10 keeps plenty of students from reaching school on time every morning. 1-10 was not only one of the worst freeways in Houston, but also one of the worst in the country. _Sadaf Farooqui in the "international eye" and stimulated the city's economy. "It would have been awesome if we were chosen to host in 2012, but I guess it would be best if New York wins because they really need the economic stimulation in their city right now," said junior Afshana Haque, psychology major. One prominent change in infrastructure was the new Westpark Tollway which began in June of 2001. The new tollway should be totally automated, which means EZ-TAG access only. The funds required for the project should be collected through bond sales and through the money Houstonians already paid for the Sam Houston and Hardy Toll Road. -Sadaf Farooqui The completed tollway will run about 16 miles total and cost approximately $250 million dollars. tmimnmiHMm
