Cleveland neighborhoods destroyed by "free"ways

Recommended Posts

Excellent visuals show why (in my opinion) urban highways have been a destructive waste of resources. https://t.co/xLBq0n5rDp via @twkovach

Have you seen the book on all of the freeways that were planned for Cleveland? It explains the large medians along Interstate 90 west of Interstate 71, along Interstate 480 in Warrensville Heights/Broadway and in several other areas.

Yes, known them all my life. They were dotted lines on maps I collected and re-drew when I was little boy in the 1970s.

 

BTW, there were several plans for the median I-90 west of I-71, including transit plans...

Well said. Such a thought is incomprehensible to the Norman Bel Geddes adherents who believe that people should be able to drive through cities just as freely as planes fly over them. That runs in direct contrast to the 5,000-history and purpose of cities, and that's why American cities declined so precipitously in the New Deal era and especially after World War II....
