Local Landmark as Symbol of Infrastructure Decay

PulaskiSkyway_1970s_JC LibraryWe’re usually excited to see a local landmark in the national media. But for those of us who know and love the Pulaski Skyway, it is sad to see it held up as a model of infrastructure decline. The American Public Radio show Marketplace, aired a story earlier this week about the sorry state of American highways in general, and the Pulaski Skyway in particular.

It should be said that the skyway is probably best loved by those of us who admire its dramatic presence in the landscape from a distance, rather than by the 70,000 who travel on it daily.
