It’s been a while, so I figured I would post an open thread for ideas and suggestions. This time around I pose the question:
What if the City of Indianapolis buried the I65/I70 split downtown? A simple enough question but one in which a multiude of feelings are elicited. What would happen to congestion? How much would it cost? Why go to the trouble? Other cities around the country are stuggling with this question. Seattle is looking at digging a tunnel for the freeway that runs through their downtown. It has been praised and decried by people. Some calling it an awesome possibility for livability while others accuse it of being social engineering to drive people out of their cars. Obviously, Seattle has more geographic constraints than Indianapolis. I won’ t take this space to advocate for or against it, but leave it up to the readers. I have attached a graphic as the focus area and frankly, its the most amount of detail I could squeeze into a screen shot.
Have at it!
