The Saga Of A Chapel Hill Parkway

Independent columnust Burtman offers a scathing analysis and indictment of the failed plan to improve South Columbia Street in Chapel Hill, N.C.

"Time is strangely relative. Five years don't register on the evolutionary scale but represent an eon in our recent technological history. For local planners and residents working on a concept to improve South Columbia Street in Chapel Hill, five years seem like only yesterday. But for the state Department of Transportation, those same five years look like a throwback to the dinosaur age."
