Be careful what you wish for. After years of pleading, we finally have Governor Malloy’s full attention on the problems of transportation. But his recently announced plan for the state sound like he’s been reading from the book of Moses ... Robert Moses, the NYC planner who never met a highway he didn’t like.
Governor Malloy has announced that he wants to widen our interstate highways. All of them, everywhere! “Look at New Jersey,” he said recently. “They were smart enough to build parallel highways to existing highways,” evoking images of the six-lane wide New Jersey Turnpike where cars and trucks run in their own lanes.
