"Maybe you’ve wondered why Highway 59 was built where it would disconnect the East End from downtown. Or maybe you’ve wondered why Interstate 10 was built through the Fifth Ward." Kyle Shelton Rice University This new book addresses a lot of the history behind how Houston’s transportation decisions were made over the years and how those decisions shaped the city.

    From Highways To Public Transit: Book Examines How Houston's Transportation Landscape Took Shape | Houston Public Media
    Rice University researcher Kyle Shelton tells the story in "Power Moves: Transportation, Politics, and Development in Houston." As you're driving around Houston or riding (or not riding) our public transportation, maybe you've found yourself wondering "Why'd they do it that way?"
