Freeways Going Green

Dallas, Texas is building a new park on a deck over the Woodall Rodgers Freeway, a strategy for creating new public spaces that is being tried across the country.

Tod Newcombe at Governing says that in the past few years, "...parks over highways have appeared in Boston, Phoenix, Seattle, Trenton, N.J., and Duluth, Minn., to name a few places."

The Dallas park will reconnect the uptown and downtown neighborhoods "...for the first time in decades, and provide a majestic green centerpiece for the city's burgeoning art district."
