Free Press on the Road to a Better Environment

Folks:

Today's Detroit Free Press editorial page weighs in on the need to re-invest in Michigan's ragged road system & to support regional transit. Both actions would pay large dividends by preserving open land that otherwise would be carved up by new highways, while world class transit also would reduce air and water pollution.


Transportation
Michigan's roads need aggressive care
June 16, 2000
No matter how the statistics are sliced and diced,
most Michigan drivers know the roads still need lots and lots of work... http://www.freep.com/voices/editorials/eroads16_20000616.htm


Regional transit
Dialogue a harbinger of hope
June 16, 2000
U.S. Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick deserves some credit for trying to keep the critical issue of
regional transportation on the public agenda, even
if it looks like a long, rough road to meaningful
improvements...
