Chapter Three considers the role of historical memory in politics of fighting freeways. While some communities successfully blocked highway construction by insisting upon the historical significance of their neighborhoods, other communities were left to salvage memories from the rubble of destruction. This chapter thus shows how freeways ruptured not only a community’s experience of space, but also its sense of time.
