"1969 marked the year of strong opposition within cities to urban highways. In Cleveland, they are referred to as the highway revolts."
"Such pressure led to a pledge in April 1970 by (Republican) Governor James A. Rhodes, then locked in a primary fight for a seat in the U.S. Senate, that he would never force a highway on a community that did not want it ."
"it does show the strengths that can be found when likeminded communities find common cause to question a decision that was made for them."
We need to see this happening here in Los Angeles County.
