$30m Restroom
« on: August 09, 2019, 09:48:49 PM »
This week TxDOT let a contract for nearly $30m to build an opulent rest stop on IH-10 near Van Horn.  Federal funding.  Don't know what the budget is for Guadalupe or Big Bend National Parks, but I think $30m would go a long way toward improving, expanding and maintaining.

The fanciest rest stop I've ever seen was the Rt. 66 themed one on I-40 Eastbound near Clarendon, TX between Amarillo and OKC.
