    I like the term “grumble letter”. Executive summary of the letters:

    grumble 1: It’s gonna cost billions! Lets use the money instead to fix and expand roads. (No mention of how that would fix the state’s long term north-south transportation needs though).

    grumble 2: I don’t believe it can be built under budget.

    Cathartic complaints but no viable alternatives suggested.
