To the Editor:
Just wondering why the city and TxDOT did not make Fort Hood Street / State Highway 195 five lanes heading south as it is on Fort Hood Street north of the loop (Loop 201).
Oh, wait. My wife told me they want to fill up all the businesses first for more tax revenue.
But Elms Road has five lanes,and most of Elms goes through residential areas with six-foot fences.
Talking about Highway 195, in Bell County going south, the highway is very loud and kind of rough, but when you get to the next county (Williamson), it is smooth and quiet all the way to Interstate 35.
I believe if 195 had a center lane south of the loop, there could be a lot of new businesses open.
