We were promised that if we spent half a billion dollars closing our ring highway system, the downtown would benefit because all that through traffic wouldn't have to go through the city any more. Obviously we were being lied to, because when we asked for trucks to stop going through the downtown the Chamber of Commerce said no way, the trucks need to have shortcuts through the city. The ring highway is complete, you can drive a 360 all the way around the city in about half an hour and I still have to dodge 40,000 roaring cars coming down Main Street every day. There is NOT a "NEED" to move traffic through the city, there's a NEED to STOP moving traffic through the city.
