Downtown freeways

My idea to improve this place

Create parks around our downtown freeways like Seattle did in the 70';s with Freeway Park

So that people could... 

reclaim public space

Because I want San Antonio to be...

Green, innovative and mindful of its resources

Redesign and reconstruct the major highway overpasses and intersections that surround the downtown core areas to allow traffic to flow more freely

All four major highway intersections around the downtown core areas, 0.07 Kms

have painting work days for citizens to spruce up shabby buildings and lots. I imagine clubs, troops (boy and girl scouts), just plain locals could rally around the effort in COOL WEATHER.
