I'm signing because highways are better for getting people between cities, rather than getting them through cities.

We can't afford to keep up these monstrosities in our midst because they don't return anything on the billions that we've spent to build the in the first place. Put back the homes and neighborhoods that were there to begin with. Neighborhoods are for people, not highways. #AlendaleStrong AllendaleStrong.org

I am signing because I have been working with my neighbors who have experienced this harm. It is up close and personal.

I have seen in Houston the unbelievable damage that freeways cause to communities - dividing neighborhoods, displacing minorities and low-income families, worsening air quality and flooding, and more - and I hope to see the US take back these mistakes and rebuild our cities.

Urban Freeways were a mistake and they hurt the neighborhoods they travel through.

Highways through cities were among the great errors of the 20th century; we should work to correct these mistakes in the 21st.

Highways through U.S. cities are reaching the end of their lifespans. We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to make better choices going forward, and repair the significant damage.

I'm signing because I want to see the Claiborne Expressway in New Orleans taken down and restored to the commercially vibrant, tree-lined boulevard that it once was and is meant to be.
