• I oppose the current design for the Oak Hill highway project.
• This overbuild of a 12 lane, stacked highway wastes federal, state, and local funds, estimated to be a $700 billion expenditure.
• It’s a dangerous, reckless design to put a stacked highway at the intersection of three fault lines.
• Highway designs should protect our water sources rather than deliberately contaminate them, which would be the effect on Williamson Creek and the Edwards Aquifer.
• This overbuild will sacrifice 288 protected trees, an unnecessary and unacceptable devastation.

Opposition to the current Oak Hill Highway Project
To Governor Abbott, Secretary Buttigieg, and Those Who Can Pause the Oak Hill Parkway Project:
The $674 million, 12-lane tollroad design for the Oak Hill Parkway project wastes tax dollars. It mandates channelization of Williamson Creek, dangerous excavation of a fault zone over an aquifer, and destruction of more than 200 heritage trees. None of this is necessary. Please halt the imminent construction and require a practical, sufficient re-design.
