I just received this email from Don Young:
CBS 11 News will have a live update at 6 pm CST from Carter Avenue to announce that Chesapeake has submitted a plan to TXDOT that will move the gathering line North of I-30.
Rumors of this have ben floating for days. Wendy Davis has told several people privately that a deal has been reached. Now for the devilish details and the Chesapeake rah-rah show.
Many thanks to Steve Doeung for being the lone holdout who allowed time for this to happen. He is the hero here, NOT Chesapeake.

Steve is the one who wrote the letter in this post:
The Barnett Shale Money Changers
Gas pipeline in Fort Worth would run along Interstate 30, not under neighborhood
The pipeline will run along I-30 instead of through Carter Ave. front yards.
The state highway department has agreed in principle to allow a natural gas gathering line to run along Interstate 30 east of downtown, eliminating the need for a controversial pipeline beneath peoples’ front yards on Carter Avenue.
I’m not clear on the “in principle” part.

I think what that means is that TxDOT has given their requirements and are awaiting CHK's agreeing to these terms/details ON PAPER since words from certain entities are practically worthless unless written down on paper–kinda like dealing with a greasy used car salesman who will say just about anything to make the deal but will turn right around and deny promises/agreements made before the close. In other words, people with principle are weary and leary of those with little or no principle at all. And as such, they have to preface their agreements with that wording (nevermind a "gentleman's handshake" deal).–Scott Carter
I am against using our public road ROW's for installation of pipelines. It is the use of tax money to subsidize Big Gas. Further it is dangerous for the traveling public.
Cheap Tricks and Costly Truths says
Sharon, is this a win for the Carter Ave residents?
Big win! It's not yet on paper but we're considering it a win.
Dear friends–this is what many would call a "major upset", along the line of the pesky US hockey team in the 1980 Winter Olympics. It is not simply a victory for Carter Ave. residents. The facts will show that it is a victory for (and based on)truthfullness, common decency and common sense, personal moral clarity, and that dang Texas spirit as was on display at the Alamo. DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES?
