Transforming Urban Freeways

(p.236) Chapter Ten Transforming Urban Freeways
Rethinking America's Highways
Robert W. Poole Jr.
University of Chicago Press

Early plans envisioned a network of parkways, not the huge freeways that were built. This chapter suggests modifying existing freeways via elevated lanes, tunnels, deck and lids, to close gaps and add some capacity without destroying any more neighborhoods. Congestion would be addressed via networks of express toll lanes. Managed arterials would supplement the revamped freeways.
