Abstract

This case centers on Syracuse, New York, which is polarized over a critical transportation infrastructure question. Interstate 81, running through the heart of downtown, is rapidly deteriorating, and deciding what to do about the aging Interstate is a vexing problem that challenges lawmakers, planning officials, and citizens to make many decisions affecting their community.
