HIGHWAY LOCATION AND THE URBAN SCENE

URBAN HIGHWAY PLANNING MUST PROCEED WITH MUCH GREATER RECOGNITION OF THE RECIPROCAL NATURE OF HIGHWAYS AND ENVIRONMENT THAN HAS BEEN TRUE BEFORE. IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO BUILD HIGHWAYS TO SERVE THE EXISTING TRAFFIC NEED OF OUR URBAN AREAS OR PROJECTIONS OF THESE NEEDS. TRANSPORTATION PLANNING AND ROUTE SELECTION MUST PROCEED FROM FULL RECOGNITION THAT TRANSPORTATION DEVELOPMENTS, BY RENDERING THE RELATIVE EASE OR DIFFICULTY OF MOVEMENT WITHIN AN URBAN AREA, ARE THE BIGGEST FACTORS DETERMINING LOCATION OF ACTIVITY AND THE GENERAL PHYSICAL FORM OF THE METROPOLIS. /CGRA/
