These 15 Urban Highways Have Got to Go

| | No Comments
A leading advocacy group is calling for the removal of 15 urban highways built on land from which millions of Black, Latinx and indigenous residents were forcibly displaced — land that includes the site of the 1921 Tulsa race massacre, which displaced thousands of Black Oklahomans just decades before a highway destroyed the community all over again.

Advocates are fighting for better protection for vulnerable road users from the federal manual that dictates how signs, signals and roadway markings work on U.S. roads, but some are going further to urge the Department of Transportation to set strong standards for the virtual signals that have just as much of an impact on how drivers behave in our communities, too — and give cities more tools to rein in the private companies that are making life hell for non-drivers.

Over the weekend, we received word that the craigslist Charitable Fund had awarded Streetsblog SF a $25,000 grant to help with 2021, raising our total for the drive to $45,685. While this is just under our goal, it's enough to assure that Streetsblog San Francisco will continue to publish for all of 2021 assuming our advertising income remains steady.
