John Norquist Heads to Alabama for a Road Block
John Norquist is in Birmingham, Alabama today to help RETHINK280, the organization fighting the proposed $800 million expansion of U.S. 280 with the construction of a 10-lane Atlanta-style freeway from the Elton Stephens Expressway to Dolly Ridge Road.
RETHINK280 is a group that "believes there are better, more cost-effective alternatives that would ease U.S. 280 traffic congestion without damaging the health and economic viability of communities along the corridor."
Working with Walter Kulash, a national expert in the field of livable traffic design, RETHINK 280 has developed a realistic and affordable alternative that incorporates toll-free express lanes and ground-level solutions at less than half the cost of the ALDOT plan. This alternative plan is more environmentally sensitive, more financially feasible, and better positioned for future transit opportunities.
