Firm outlines a different approach for Interstate 30

There are other ways to approach Interstate 30 through downtown Little Rock than the Arkansas highway department's idea to widen it to 10 lanes and thus create demand to widen feeder roads as well after all that concrete gets poured.

For example, Fennell Purifoy Architects, in a volunteer effort by Tom Fennell, Baxter Reecer, Ben Hartter and Ed Sergeant, have some different ideas. Instead of a freeway through the heart of the city, they propose an at-grade boulevard, with traffic lights. Major traffic would move on existing ring roads. Fascinating stuff. Downtown amenities would be many.

Take a look at it here.
