Re: The Connection Between WTC and Cortlandt St

Which is why I call for increased spending to improve rail and other public transit all over the urban metros. However, "starving" the highway system is actually an act of both national and planetary survival. Acres of concrete and tarmac do not sustain life on this planet. Further, as was shown in a multiyear project to relieve crowding on I 70 north of Rockville once the widening was finished, the LOS/delays were no better than before, but involved more cars crawling at substandard speeds. So, yes, we shouild refuse to expand the supposed throughput of freeways. Rather, we need to radically alter land use regs so as to decrease sprawl so fewer humans have a need to drive dozens of miles for errands and work.
