Between 1993 & 2017, total freeway lane-miles in the 100 largest U.S. metro areas increased by 42% (31% more than the population growth of 32%). So, free-flow on highways resulted, right, DOTs? Wrong: congestion skyrocketed by 144% (4.5X higher than the population growth).

And yes: 42% is 31% higher than 32%. Errors with percentages, especially regarding #elections, are made constantly. OK, back to crushing the “building your way out of congestion” logic: #Nashville’s traffic delay increased by 329%, or ~5.5X the % increase in lane-miles added. 3/7

I am a strong believer in local journalism.

I'm happy to say, journalism in the #Boise-area in 2019 is STRONG.

Here is a select list of some of the stories that most impacted or impressed me in 2019.

Good size crowd here for the @boisepublib hearing. LOTS of chairs put out. Still a few minutes until this begins. Public testimony will be heard. #BoiseDev
@boisepublib As far as I'm aware, the Idaho Freedom Foundation, Friends of Boise Public Library and Boise Working Together all worked to get people to this meeting. I'd estimate a little more than 100 folks here - just a rough estimate.
