“Cities are removing the concrete barriers that freeways form through their downtowns — not by tearing them down but by shrouding them in greenery and turning them into parks and pedestrian-friendly developments.”
“It’s the coming together of people wanting green space and realizing that highways are a negative to the city,” says Peter Harnik, director of the Trust for Public Land’s Center for City Park Excellence. “Covering them with green space gives you a wonderful place to live and work.”
