METRO's Board of Directors adopted an historic contract today with Parsons Transportation Group to build four more light-rail lines for Houston.
The contract, worth $1.4645 billion, will create 60,000 jobs before the approximately 20 additional miles of light rail are completed.
"These light rail lines, along with the highly successful Main Street line, will serve as the backbone for a regional system that will serve commuters across the entire Metropolitan area, and across county lines, for generations to come," said METRO Board Chairman David S. Wolff. "We are building not just a better transportation system; we are building a better future for all our citizens"
Apprentice to Darth Holden : "Please, please tell me these rail lines are being built over the dead body of Tom DeLay."
By definition. These projects could never had gone forward if he had anything to say about it. I've long been convinced that he got a cut of the highway money.
