Commissioner Rosier says that right-of- way for the Jefferson Parkway (JP) have been acquired and the CDOT study and approval process is proceeding. What he did not say is that CDOT and DRCOG will provide no state or federal money to help build the Parkway as they are doing for other parts of the highway system in the NW Quadrant.The need for the Parkway has never been established as the most cost-effective way to improve mobility in the NW Quadrant, yet the Parkway Authority has collected and spent millions of taxpayer dollars on the project for over eight years. The plan is to get a private financier as for the NW Parkway, but none is interested in investing in the expensive project without state and federal support.
The commissioners should stop collecting taxpayer money for the JP and direct funds to improving SH-93, SH-72 and Indiana that are being financially supported by CDOT and DRCOG.
