San Antonio's McAllister Freeway, or rather its proposed construction, aroused so much furor as to generate national publicity in the early 1970s. Objections arose because it cut through a park and a golf course, near a zoo, and close to historic Alamo Stadium (whose old masonry might be damaged by blasting for freeway construction). This became one of the nation's most famous stop-and-start-the-freeway projects, twice involving court orders stopping work. Today complete, the freeway is reportedly liked by a heavy majority of area citizens.
