The problem is greed,Real estate overbuilt the area to line their pockets and now the auto industry and oil companies are going to overbuild the roads so they can line their pockets.Of course, the one truly lining their pockets is the bank from all of them which runs the entire area with Charlotte being a banking central.So i wouldn't expect them to do anything smart.
They really need to halt expansion of expensive road projects and continue with the less expensive mass transit,Add more trolleys,buses.If people don't like the freeway they have a choice.But that's the smart planning choice,not the greedy one since you can't sell more car loans with better mass transit.
