40 These incremental measures could only accommodate a limited amount of new traffic. During the 1920s, for more and more experts on urban transportation, it seemed that a qualitative “leap” toward a new scale of speed and capacity was needed, rather than expensive modifications of street patterns laid down many decades before. 41 Piecemeal traffic accommodation measures such as street widening did have impacts on the form and function of the central city, although nothing as dramatic as the later freeway building operations.
New urban freeways would be used to clear out slums and blighted areas. 2 As Jones has noted: Tasking highway departments to play a principal role in the metropolitan arena— the principal role, as it turned out—was a conclusive event. . Freeways displaced parkways as the focal technology of urban road programs; transit development was displaced from the metropolitan agenda; and planning for transportation was severed from planning for adjacent land use. 3 During the 1930s, urban freeways had risen on the national agenda, especially in New York City, where Robert Moses pushed through an unprecedented sequence of large-scale public works.
The highway engineers’ inherited experience with rural freeway building influenced both their theory and practice as they gradually crossed inside city limits after the early 1930s. Rural highway deficiencies differed from the problems that engineers would later face in the cities. In rural areas the roads often meandered, following section lines and avoiding topographical obstacles; there were many dangerous turns and curves. Rural roads often failed to form an interconnected system for long trips.
