Episode #7: Politicization of Transportation

Angie Schmidt of Rust Wire and StreetsBlog joins the UrbanCincy team to discuss what happens when transportation investments become highly politicized. We discuss Representative Steve Chabot's attempt to block federal funding for light rail and "fixed guideway" projects in Cincinnati; Governor John Kasich's rejection of federal funding for the 3C Corridor high-speed rail project; and Hamilton County's efforts to block sewer upgrades contemporaneous with the Cincinnati Streetcar project. We also discuss the contradiction between rural highways and rural flights being fully funded while urban highway and bridge projects (Brent Spence Bridge, I-75) are delayed or struggle to receive funding.
