A multimillion-dollar project that includes rebuilding and widening Interstate 10 through Downtown El Paso is one step closer to becoming a reality.
Last week, the Texas Transportation Commission added the Reimagine I-10 Segment 2 freeway widening project to TxDOT’s 2022 Unified Transportation Program, a 10-year plan that lays out the state agency’s priorities.
. . .
The Downtown transportation project could include a deck park, but that would be funded separately from Reimagine I-10 and has not been added to TxDOT’s final plans.
But how about this May 26, 2016 article on CBS4Local.com:
MountainStar Sports group owns the El Paso Chihuahuas. It’s CEO Josh Hunt told CBS4 he would like the stadium to “cap the freeway,” or sit above Interstate 10.
What sorcery is this? How could Mr. Hunt contemplate a deck above I-10, years before TxDOT even considered it? Does Mr. Hunt practice the dark arts?
I think maybe we should throw him in a river, or maybe a canal, and see if he floats.
Or maybe it’s all part of a secret plan.
