The Great American Asphalt Machine

Discussing important transportation issues should be part of the presidential campaigns.

"Is the Great American Asphalt machine (celebrated by our colleague Jane Holtz Kay in Asphalt Nation) about to get derailed – or given multi-billions for massive expansion?...It would be great to see the presidential campaign focus on vital transportation issues like these, touching as they do on our economic future, our environment and quality of life, democratic planning and choice. But don’t count on it."
