'Freeway' A Misnomer in So. California
"Congestion on Southern California's freeways--already the nation's worst-- will intensify and finally come to a gridlocked halt in just a few years unless dramatic steps are undertaken, traffic experts say." Solutions include building more roads as well as managing existing ones with increasingly new technologies that allow systems to run better. Planners are also looking at "land-use changes that would concentrate more densely packed communities near freeways and public transit, as well as mixed-use urban villages...where residents would have access to shopping and entertainment within walking distance of their homes."
