"In early 2007, a group of citizens rose and said, emphatically, no. We do not want $100 million in taxpayer money spent to prop up this mistake for another 20 or 40 years. We would like our city back, thank you. They understood that the unfortunate placement of the highway had cut the city in half, creating a barricade that separates the North End and Asylum Hill from the Capitol area and downtown."
