Double-decker highways are back. But they're not going to solve traffic jams
Transportation has been one of our top issues for many years and finding solutions to the short- and long-term issues have been our focus. Spurred by comments Elon Musk made about solutions needing to focus on tunneling and double-decker roadways, CNN recently approached the Chamber to comment on Miami-Dade’s signature bridge. The article properly points out that while these are good and necessary short-term answers, building more roadways will never offer long-term solutions to a growing population’s gridlock.
We must continue to invest the majority of our infrastructure dollars on expanding our transit options and getting commuters to use them.
