He says population growth and traffic congestion demands action. And he believes the road could be built while protecting natural resources, despite a pending <a href="http://www.sh45sw.com/about/">environmental review from TxDOT</a> and push-back from environmentalists and stakeholders in the area.&nbsp;</p><p> Tue, 22 Oct 2013 20:48:05 +0000 Ryan Groves & Laura Rice 8990 at http://kut.org Travis County Commissioners Support Long-Delayed SH 45 SW
