That’s my question after seeing another excellent photo essay by Doug Loudenback, this time on construction of the new Interstate 40 Crosstown Expressway. One photo captures a new billboard awaiting the highway’s opening to bring some billboard company a lot of money.
But here’s the catch: the city council banned billboards along the new highway a few years ago. Is anyone at City Hall watching to ensure the law isn’t violated? Or did we see another case of a permit “accidentally” being granted by public works (I say “accidentally” because I still don’t buy the last time this excuse was given).
