Détruire des autoroutes plutôt que d’en construire

Beau reportage photo du New York Times sur certaines villes américaines qui convertissent leurs autoroutes en milieux de vie plus attrayants.

In order to accommodate cars and commuters, many cities “basically destroyed themselves,” said Norman Garrick, a professor at the University of Connecticut who studies how transportation projects have reshaped American cities. “Rochester has shown what can be done in terms of reconnecting the city and restoring a sense of place,” he said. “That’s really the underlying goal of highway removal.” The project’s successes and stumbling blocks provide lessons for other cities looking to retire some of their own aging highways. Nearly 30 cities nationwide are currently discussing some form of removal.

On parle ici entre autres d’autoroutes qui créaient des barrières dans ces villes, ce qui ne sera peut-être pas le cas du fameux 3e lien. Mais ça peut quand même utile de noter cette tendance.
