Houston to improve access to NRG before Super Bowl by Gabrielle Banks, Houston Chronicle
"Locke proposed the idea of joint cooperation, beginning with roads that are critical to accessing the city’s epic NFL extravaganza and that could extend to clearing vacant city lots and abandoned properties throughout the precinct that have become dumping grounds or environmental hazards. At least one county official views the scope of this deal as a historic first.Under the plan, the county would cover the cost of the roadwork, Locke said, shouldering the hefty tab that presents a challenge for the cash-strapped city. The roads are Ardmore, Holly Hall, Knight and El Rio. The city would return the favor by sharing some of its block grant money to fund county programs and services."
