Robert Moses at Your Fingertips.

Posted by Sarah Mirk on Wed, Sep 30, 2009 at 12:40 PM

In last week's Dead Freeways article and on the blog I talked about freeway godfather Robert Moses' 1943 plan for the city of Portland.

After the article came out, a couple people (nerds) asked if I could get them a copy of Moses' 89-page, spiral bound plan to look through at their leisure. But I didn't even have an actual copy of the plan—I was lucky enough to page through the copy of Moses' plan that local amateur historian/know-it-all Dan Haneckow acquired via miracle at Powell's. But now, by the grace of God and the city transportation planner Bob Cortright, you can download you very own copy of Roberts Moses' 66-year-old vision for Portland.

Revel in his numerous graphs and beautiful paintings of Portland freeways!


You're welcome.
