Reason Enough not to have an Elevated 280

30 April 2007

It was bound to happen (again).  Another double-decker collapse.  A traffic nightmare for the Bay Area in California this morning after a freakish tanker fire over the weekend (which lit up the web, too)… so, I wonder if our local Birmingham news media will pick up on this to assist in the argument against an elevated 280?  Or, will they see it for what it is… an unfortunate freak accident at a major intersection? 

Either way, it’ll be many months before the good people of Oakland and surrounding cities get their commutes back in order while this mess gets fixed.

More details about Birmingham’s proposed elevated highway here.
