Thread 1: More Lanes
Consider this scenario: The city plans to build an interstate that promises a quicker drive for commuters into the business district. However, the newly built six lanes will cut through a low-income neighborhood bordering the business district. In addition to blocks being razed, only one bridge is planned to connect the two sides of the soon-to-be separated neighborhood.
