Freeway Revolts

Joe Foti, a colleague of mine at WRI, just alerted me to a sprawling Wikipedia page on freeway revolts, a term referring to citizen efforts to stop freeway construction in their neighborhoods. In some cases the entry simply lists freeway projects that we’re “canceled, truncated or stalled” in a particular region. In other cases, it’s more thorough, providing detailed analysis of why residents opposed freeway construction and some of their efforts to stop it.
