My hometown is a typical sprawling suburban city that is dealing with the the results of decades of car-centric development. The city was prepared to spend over $200 million to widen a short 8 kilometer stretch of stroad; their largest infrastructure project of all time.

But this project was recently cancelled, due to concerns about climate change. Will this be a turning point in car-dependency, or just a speed bump on the way to transforming "Forest City" into "Asphalt City"?

Special thanks to @ClimateTown , @RMTransit , and @alanthefisher for bringing boring London city staff report quotes to life.
