Take careful note of what happened to us in Boston, and take careful note of what happened in San Francisco when they lost that elevated highway in the earthquake.
Seriously, if you can arrange an “accident” to hit a BQE viaduct or any with of your other problem highways, it would be major boon.
And hey, you know, things happen. Construction projects can sometimes compromise the foundation of an overpass, necessitating a highway closure. What can you do?
“Street designers seem to be asking themselves, "How can I make it less unpleasant for pedestrians to interact with cars on this street"?, when what they should be asking themselves is "Is there a need for us to have cars on this street at all?"”
