The Roads to a City’s Bankruptcy
John Latta | August 9, 2013
Here’s an interesting look at data about what its accumulator calls “unnecessary infrastructure.”
What he/she (a bio, with no name, says the blogger is a professional Urban Planner and Designer) is doing is trying to find a link between a big city’s bankruptcy (Detroit apparently triggered this entry) and the lane miles per capita within the boundaries of that city.
“The numbers,” the blogger says, “break down into pretty similar groupings. Also, if your city falls on the worse side of Detroit in any of these, there could be a rocky landing in the future of S.S. YourCity.”
Check out the blog and you’ll find some interesting takes on lane miles and the economic health of major urban areas. I’m not much on information that comes without the name of its supplier, so I’ll just refer you and move on.
