Summary
The 1,400-mile extension of I-69 south from Indianapolis, if completed, will connect Canada to Mexico. It has been in development for two decades -- and has been opposed by environmentalists, farmers, ranchers, anarchists, and others who question both the wisdom of building more highways and the merits of globalization
Summary
A history of the controversies surrounding the construction of Interstate 69 assesses its potential while surveying the clashes between adversarial interests from politicians and environmentalists to ranchers and farmers
