This new article from the Investigative Post confirms our doubts about the effectiveness of this traffic rejuvenation project.

“It turns out that Hoyt and other state officials promoting the project have been proven wrong by an environmental review commissioned by the state Department of Transportation.

“The change in traffic patterns resulting from this project would not affect overall the air quality of the West Side neighborhoods,” the study concluded. As a result, the report said, air quality improvements would be ‘negligible.’ ”

This community is NOT negligible, and its air quality should not be either.

A public hearing for this project is scheduled for 4-8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 18, at the Connecticut Street Armory at 184 Connecticut St. 

Come. Speak. Fight for the future of our families and our homes.
