    “Double Deck Mopac” is disingenuous and wrong. The controversial raised lanes are flyover connections, not elevated lanes.

      How about now?

      Sorry, I didn’t realize that the rendering of the raised lane was just for getting across the lake. Also, kinda ironically for being accused of disingenuousness, if they can’t be convinced not to add automobile capacity to this corridor, I’d much rather TXDOT take vertical space along the whole length of such a project rather than horizontal space. However, to be actually useful, they’d simply reallocate existing SOV lanes to HOV and transit and carry more people in the existing space.
