KSTP-TV covered our press conference this morning. Here is their report, which is quite balanced:
It is interesting to see how weak the opposing view is. There is no doubt that the Twin Cities are unduly congested, and no doubt that building more highway lane miles will reduce congestion. Pretty much every Twin Cities driver will say: Let’s do it!
We just need to get MNDot and the Met Council on board with a better transportation policy, which, given the Council’s hard-left ideology, may be easier said than done.
