DALLAS — It was a flashy farewell to a road that hasn't even been built.
Opponents of the proposed Trinity Parkway held an old fashioned New Orleans-style jazz funeral for the project in the Bishop Arts District on Sunday.
Even though the proposal to build the nine-mile long toll road along the Trinity River's levees is not quite dead, opponents vow to keep fighting against it.
Voters approved a bond package to fund the project in 1998, but flooding and environmental concerns have plagued the parkway proposal. Dallas city officials are now waiting for results of a federal study before proceeding.
If built, the Trinity Parkway could cost as much as $2 billion to complete.
