  1. That Atlanta development shows breathtaking stupidity. State governments should protect these rights-of-way by calculating what it would cost to re-establish them later.

  2. Was that Asheville plan covered previously in Streetsblog? Is my memory failing or was that another locale?

  3. A great place for Detroit to start seems to be the extension of their streetcar to the Amtrak station so there’s some connectivity to build on, then discuss BRT/streetcar services on Grand River & Gratiot.
