Louisville’s “Spaghetti Junction” Is a Testament to How Cars Degrade Cities
Cities need to start thinking about themselves as cities, as places to be, to live and work, not as bits of infrastructure designed to move goods and people around. Louisville has bet big on auto infrastructure, and it will be paying the price for a century.
Other cities still have choices — see the Congress on New Urbanism’s list of Freeways Without Futures for some good targets. Whether we cap, bury, or remove freeways entirely (hey Dallas, listen to this guy!), they should be no part of life in a city.
