Daniels’ Administration spends $1 billion for sprawl-development

This is a case study for the creation of ugly sprawl. Give it ten years and the bypass will be as congested as the old road. Then what? Another bypass? Adding bypasses around towns is the myopic answer to traffic congestion. I generally like Mitch Daniels, but if there’s one thing that drives me nuts, it is his insistance that Indiana needs roads, roads, and more roads. This is sprawl-development which is distinct from economic development the same way 100 calories of doughnut is distinct from 100 calories of broccoli.
