New vision for viaducts promises new streets, better parks, a new “heart of the city”

June 7th, 2012 · 154 Comments

The first open house for the viaducts (4-7 Tuesday in the Woodward’s atrium) was packed. Another one today and then Saturday.

Here’s what the proponents are saying that taking down the viaducts will do: create one great street instead of two half-used semi-highways, improve the park space, bring a grand ceremonial street (Georgia) down to the waterfront, provide two more blocks of (city-owned) land around Main to reconstitute housing that was once part of Chinatown, and not block any views.

I know not everyone agrees with that. I heard there were some rumblings of discontent at the open house. The floor is yours.
