Sheridan Expressway Featured on PBS Special

Blueprint America: Road to the Future
Wednesday, 05.20.2009 at 8.00 pm on Channel 13

Miles O'Brien, former aviation and science correspondent for CNN, hosts this documentary about innovative infrastructure projects being discussed and created in Portland, Denver and New York City. …[C]ities that once built infrastructure to serve only automobiles and trucks are now looking to innovative new forms of transportation systems - like trolleys, light rail, pedestrian walkways and bike paths. Whether it is talking to residents pushing sustainable development in the Bronx, smart growth in Denver, or a journalist in Portland whose beat is bicycling, Blueprint America finds a common theme: America’s love affair with the car may be a thing of the past.

The Southern Bronx River Watershed Alliance and its vision to turn the Sheridan Expressway into 28 acres of open space, affordable housing, businesses, and jobs is highlighted in this PBS special on the future of infrastructure in America!
