Re "RT chief calls Fix50 transit aid too low" (Page A1, April 11): Maintain Highway 50? Please. But dinosaurs have returned to Caltrans with Fix50's plan for "Improved traffic operations throughout the project area." When did this myth replace sustainability? Our best institutions deserve blame too for Sacramento's growing strip freeway development. We need to plan to reclaim the city and its neigborhoods from freeways by tearing down or undergrounding or covering them up. When will we ever learn?
