Phase I connects President Barack Obama Parkway north of Conroy Road to Metrowest Boulevard, a mile-and-a-half stretch that includes lighting, sidewalks and on-street bike lanes. Shingle Creek Trail, used by pedestrians and bicyclists, was also extended.

You drive on the left and there’s no gas station.

I like the old system of not naming things after politicians until they were dead.

I’d rather take a nice drive on the George Bush Tollway (Dallas area).

Should have made it a traffic circle. The Barack Obama Traffic Circle: always veering to the left, you never get anywhere as long as you are on it, and the only way to get off of it is to make a right turn.

Next up: the Michelle Obama Parkway. There will be no fast food joints or restaurants on it, and you’ll be forced to jog down the parkway, rather than drive on it.

Obama hates it (a street named after him) -- He rather have a bike trail named after him.

This road will be for Electric vechiles only -- No SUVs, Trucks or cars that gets under 55 MPGs.
