As in many American cities, interstate construction disproportionately took aim on working class and African-American communities, displacing thousands of residents and transforming remaining neighborhoods from the northwest side of the city, West Indianapolis, Fountain Square, and the east side. As the state and city now contemplate significant changes to that half-century old highway, the 21st-century reconstruction again raises many of the same issues of equity in urban interstate planning.
