The freeway removal campaign got a boost in March when the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy released “The Life and Death of Urban Highways,” a 39-page report on the benefits that five of the world’s cities have gained by replacing limited-access highways. “Decades of failing to deliver congestion relief and improve safety combined with the hard evidence of damaged neighborhoods have proven that the urban highway is a failed experiment,” former Denver Planning Director Peter J. Park declared in the report’s foreword. Park, who resigned his Denver position last August after winning a Loeb Fellowship at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, has been preaching the freewayremoval message at Harvard and at the nearby Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, where he is a Lincoln/Loeb Fellow. He argues that the nation needs an expanded campaign to persuade officials and the public about the good things that come from eliminating urban freeways.
