No matter what your ideal vision of Downtown Austin may be, the current, flood-ravaged, unsafe and unsavory Waller Creek ain't part of it. With the Tunnel, we can bring downtown renewal - however defined - east of Congress Avenue, where it's most needed, while protecting public safety and water quality and protecting millions of dollars of public tax-supported investment. Everything's a boondoggle until you find one that makes sense.
