Thank you for the sites. One shows a map and it looks like 281 in Texas is on "their" list. Now I have to try and find out what I can about that one. It goes right through Hamilton, Hamilton Co, TX and is called Rice when it goes through town. My ancestors settled that place and Rice is named after my gr gr grandfather James M. Rice, first county judge. One of the cemeteries where my ancestors are buried is close to that road.

Well, I have a second cousin once removed who lives in San Antonio, but still owns a home in Hamilton. I'll have to get in touch with him, see what he knows. And here I thought all I had to worry about was a toll road almost next to my house here in California. That pales in comparison to ones that plan to affect old historical cemeteries in Texas.
