CNU's Freeways Without Futures list boosts online interest in teardowns
CNU's list of "Freeways Without Futures" has gotten quite a bit of web coverage since its release last week.
Wired's blog post gives a well rounded summary of the CNU initiative, and shared comments from John Norquist about the choice many cities have to not reinvest in highway and instead use that money to build better and smarter urban infrastructure, such as boulevards. In the article, Norquist notes, "Cities like San Francisco that have removed freeways and reclaimed waterfronts have turned them into magnets for people and investment."
A post from the Streetsblog had a nice write up as well, detailing NYC's own Sheridan Expressway and how it preserving it is getting harder to justify.
