Thumbs up The time has come for the Bolivar Bridge !

Let DFW have there "fluff" bridges, but make no mistake about it the time has come for a showcase bridge that will add to the economic and social development of the whole state. I'm talking about a bridge between Galveston Island and the Bolivar Penninsula.

Bolivar Bridge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

TxDOT held meetings with the Galveston and Port Bolivar communities to obtain input. A third ferry landing is being built at the present time, but was considered an interim solution only; the long-term goal is a permanent fixed crossing.

While I agree that there's a lot to like about Houston, if you like giant cities near the coast, I prefer Dallas because it's closer to what to me is the best "big" city in the U.S.: Fort Worth.

Even lots of Texans will disagree with me on both of those points, and that's okay.

Neither Houston nor Dallas have world-class museums like the Kimbell, the Modern or the Amon Carter, and the live entertainment choices are almost endless in Fort Worth. For tourist destinations, Deep Ellum and the Space Center are good, but nowhere near as lively as the Fort Worth Stockyards.

If I have to live in a large city, instead of my on my little farm between Mineola and Grand Saline, I'll definitely pick Fort Worth. It's big enough to have everything you need, but not so massive that it's hard to feel part of it.

At least, that's my opinion.

Are you serious? Have you ever heard of the Dallas Art District? I guess you haven't heard of the Nasher Sculpture Center either.

Now to hijack the thread.....

Ft worth needs continuous midrise development on Main from the stockyards to downtown with mixed use development. An electric street car line from the stockyards to downtown and then a line to the cultural district and zoo.
