CART is convinced that there will be significant social, financial, and environmental repercussions for our State and community with the Bridges Project and is preparing to file a new complaint challenging several aspects of the most recent ROD.
The inevitable sprawl encouraged by the Bridges Project will consume precious farmland, impact water supplies and require expensive investments.

Think Detroit. This movement of jobs and development from the city was predicted in the initial Environmental Impact Statement.
