Freeway Building Won't Solve Congestion Problem
"What if, after spending $6.25 billion to rebuild and widen metro area freeways in the name of relieving congestion, we just make it worse?..It seems counterintuitive. But I've been plodding through an impressive pile-up of studies that come to basically the same conclusion: Freeway building is no cure for congestion. A study of 70 urban areas over a 15-year period found that those investing heavily in wider roads fared no better in easing congestion than areas that did not."
