405 Construction Coverage Slammed

New, 29 comments

Streetsblog slams the media for its coverage of the 405 carpool lane project (coverage which we parroted, too!) noting that instead of "uncritically passing along the press release ready estimate that the project will save 7 million travel hours, the press should have asked questions such as: Since other major road widening projects in the area are causing congestion during their construction, and because transportation agencies are reporting that additional highway capacity actually brings more cars to the road, are commuters going to see any net reduction in commuting time?"
