Using three case studies, Syracuse New York, Memphis Tennessee and, Interstate 105 in Los Angeles, I trace the changing regulatory environment for decision-making on interstate highway construction within inner cities in the United States. Syracuse saw construction before the evolution of a modern environmental, historical, transportation and housing law; in Memphis the freeway was stopped by citizen actions resulting in judicial interpretations of federal highway law; and the Los Angeles resolution was molded by a consent decree entered after a law suit brought by a new public interest law firm.
