Highway conversion in New Haven as a model for I-16 flyover removal

The area of New Haven being redeveloped by converting highway to urban boulevard

I’m firmly with the urban planners who think that removal of the I-16 flyover, which would get a small share of the TSPLOST revenues, makes sense from every angle: traffic flow, economic development, the push for “complete streets”, tax revenue, residential development, and on and on. But I didn’t know of a project of similar scale in New Haven until I saw a tweet from Streetsblog this morning about it.
