FREEWAY CONTROVERSIES AND THEIR IMPLICATIONS FOR TRANSPORTATION PLANNING: CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA--A CASE STUDY IN A SMALL METROPOLITAN AREA.

The I-380 and 549 freeway controversy in Cedar Rapids is described as a classic example of systemic ineptitude. The freeway controversies of the sixties have exposed the inadequacies of the process, structure, and scope of metropolitan transportation. Reshaping the process can be effective only when transportation planning is viewed in the context of the larger problem--public choice-making in a pluralistic society.
