San Francisco

From trafficways to livable streets

12:30 p.m. | Wednesday, July 29, 2009

San Francisco's famous freeway revolt stopped many projects that seem outrageous today, but not before miles of freeways destroyed many neighborhoods, and one-way streets and expressways turned relatively livable streets into dangerous traffic sewers. Tom Radulovich, executive director of Livable City, discusses contextualist urban transportation, the initial freeway revolt of the 1960s, and the ongoing movement in San Francisco and elsewhere to remove freeways and convert existing trafficways into livable streets.
