Mr. Biden, Tear Down This Highway

Adam Paul Susaneck is an architectural designer and the founder of Segregation by Design.  

He uses historical data and archival photography to document the consequences of redlining 

urban renewal and urban highway planning. 

Since the mid-20th century, urban highway construction has worked as a powerful tool to segregate American cities and demolish communities of color 

I-45 separates white and Hispanic communities to the north of downtown Houston, and I-69 splits white and Black communities to the south. 

Although government-led segregation is usually discussed as history, in the communities divided by these roads 

all despite decades of evidence that widening highways does little to relieve congestion.
