Upcoming rail, freeway openings just the beginning for both

Two major transportation projects scheduled to open in Houston this week – perhaps on the same day – represent distinct and sometimes warring visions of regional mobility and growth.

On Saturday, the Metropolitan Transit Authority will open its Red Line light rail extension from downtown to just north of Loop 610. And state transportation officials tentatively plan to start service Saturday on Segment E of the Grand Parkway, giving toll-paying drivers an option to get from Interstate 10 in Katy to U.S. 290 while avoiding some of Houston’s most tangled interchanges.
