Katy Freeway's Torture of Commuters Delayed
Katy Freeway commuters, you have received a one-week reprieve.
The huge-pain-in-the-ass changes on that heavily traveled highway were scheduled to take place August 25; now, says project spokeswoman Tanya McWashington, they won't occur until September 1.
"TxDot contractors have identified work activities that can be completed in advance of the permanent lane closure, allowing for the lane closure to be pushed back," she says.
It sounds like it's a little late in the project to be discovering new work activities, but then again we are most definitely not engineers.

So the bottom line is that the pain-in-the-ass has been put off. For one week.
If you arranged your entire work schedule so that you could avoid the Katy for the week beginning August 25, you're screwed.
