This essay discusses the connection between land use, cars, and housing affordability, looking first at the way freeways affected Los Angeles neighborhoods, and then at the ways changing technologies might remake them once again. She argues that cleaner, quieter, self-driving cars coupled with plans to cap freeways and build parks over them could make underused land alongside busy roadways attractive for new housing.
