Trinity tollway: “Hanging by our fingernails”

I wasn’t going to mention this, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized I had an obligation to our readers. Plus, I get to say I told you so.

An official behind the Trinity tollway says it will be increasingly difficult to meet Mayor Park Cities’ goal of finishing the highway by 2014, citing increasing costs and engineering complications. The phrase he used – twice, no less – is “hanging by our fingernails.”

The mayor, of course, remains undeterred, which I’m beginning to think is what he does best.  “As I’ve said all along, the schedule is a challenge," he said. "It’s important to have a schedule that pushes all the parties that are involved."

Obviously, the project just needs a little more vision.
