Trinity River Vision May Become Reality After Massive Water Bill

I saw that which you see here, this morning, on the front page of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram online.

So, the Star-Telegram apparently thinks that the Trinity River Vision COULD become a reality after Congress passes a massive water bill.


After boondoggling along for most of this century the Trinity River Vision could possibly maybe become a reality?

Does that mean that, even with the infusion of about a half billion dollars of federal money, that that which has become known as America's Biggest Boondoggle may still not become a reality.

Not become a reality after wasting how much money? After abusing eminent domain to take how much property and disrupt how many lives?

Has anyone noticed if The Boondoggle is yet back working on its V Piers, the construction of which was halted way back last March, due to design errors?

Has the Star-Telegram made any real effort to find out what the actual reason for the stalled bridge construction is?

How many extra millions of dollars have been doled out to those employed by the Trinity River Vision Authority due to this project going on and on year after year, with little to show for the effort?

After all these years of Boondoggling is J.D. Granger now nearing retirement age? Will J.D.'s mother live long enough to see this vision become anything anyone can see?

And can anyone with any actual understanding of engineering explain to me how those V Piers are supposed to be able to support a bridge deck?
