The American urban highways were built mostly by demolishing minority and/or poor neighbourhoods and to ensure they go through cities rather than around it. This, in turn, congested these urban highways between interstate drivers passing by and intra-urban commuters. Additional traffic congestion leads to increasing noise pollution in surrounding neighbourhoods (who were mostly black and/or poor), thus lowering their value. Not to mention that they reduce taxable income for cities and it would only push them further into a more car-orientated direction, reducing their walkability. Is there anyway to change the American urban highway system so they could be built around cities rather than through it ? Perhaps kill off Robert Moses since he acted as a major consultant in directing highway construction through cities rather than around it as it originally was supposed to be during the Eisenhower administration ?
