Urbanland: Top 10 Freeway Removal Projects

Louisville typically plays it safe. I guess there is something to be said for not failing, but when it comes to freeway removal, Louisville stands to gain more than most other projects around the country. 

Top 10 Metro Highway Removal Projects, from Urbanland:

"At one time, highway teardown projects in urban U.S. cities were rare, with about one occurring each decade. In the 1970s, Portland closed Harbor Drive. In the 1990s, San Francisco tore down the Embarcadero Freeway. And in the 2000s, Milwaukee removed the Park East Freeway spur. But this decade, freeway removal projects are gaining popularity and momentum, with three demolitions already underway and another dozen projects on the drawing board."

 Our time will come.
