It's been a while since VBPC has visited the issue of highway construction.
Even so, the pork barrel stupidity of our AOT/MPO project planning and
programming overshadow all bike and pedestrian issues.
So I'm very excited that Wayne Senville has produced a great new web site,
http://stopthecirc.com. While it would be nearly impossible for one person to
chronicle the decades of missteps and deliberate ignorance inspired by the 50's
dream of the Greater Burlington Beltway, Wayne's done an excellent job of
getting to the current issues.
Each of us knows something about how the Circ has survived and how weak a
project it is. I hope that you can take a moment to email Wayne something that
will expand and improve his website. Perhaps you have a good story about how
bike advocates have been conned into supporting the Circ as path development,
or maybe you know about some suppressed information on air pollutants
emissions, or the bogus argument that the Circ will improve emergency response
Here's Wayne's press release:
