Call us amazed that the Courier-Journal ran this letter from Gill Holland in the paper this morning. It’s full of radical ideas about the future of transportation and goes against the paper’s notorious anti-8664 stance.
In it, the guy who decided to take a “Just Do It” attitude to the concept of going green by constructing The Green Building suggests that we ditch the idea of a downtown bridge, limit the amount of vehicular traffic in downtown, bring back discussion of light rail, and even close a downtown bridge to traffic.
Holland calls them “blue-sky, out-of-the-box” ideas. Perhaps none will ever get serious consideration. But Holland’s point seems to be that our leaders should re-think their transportation concepts in light of a changing world with the potential at any moment for a return to $4 a gallon gas.
