Mr. Tim Brown, Chair of the I-35 Corridor Advisory Committee: “Connectivity is a huge issue. Again, one of the weaknesses in the original concept is that it bypassed our communities rather than connect them. One of the strengths in the interstate system was it connected our major urban areas when it was conceived 50 years ago. One of the weaknesses in the TTC concept was that it bypassed our major urban areas and didn’t really address the issue of connectivity. We think in order for any transportation system to function, it’s got to integrate into the existing grid on the ground and allow traffic to reach the destination that they’re intending to go to… There was a fear early on that if we went out and built some new parallel corridors or parallel segments somewhere that there would be a diversion of funds and that we would begin to move away from an emphasis on maintaining our existing highway infrastructure. Regardless of what we build, the existing system that we have on the ground today will continue to serve a vast majority of the traveling public in these major communities that exist on Interstate 35… We think that public-private partnerships should share some of the cost in providing connectivity.”
