Do you take the McGraw-Harper expressway? Perhaps the Grand River or Woodward expressway?
This map is the cover image of a short report that appears to be written for the public. The case is made that expressway development is critical in the goal of slum clearance. From the report:
“It is to be noted that in the highly developed urban areas, the motorways are routed in locations of lowest land values. These are sections in which are found sub-standard housing conditions and evidences of deterioration. This policy effects right-of-way economies and is an essential step in slum clearance.”
