Description

The highway system of Dayton was meant to facilitate higher productivity and movement of people. The highway system of I-75, 35, I-70 and the other lesser major highways in the area did make for faster travel, but this had unintended consequences. They came in the form of the white flight movement and the creation of suburban areas around Dayton. Drawing on Facing Projects Narratives, I will use this presentation to highlight the demographic and socioeconomic shifts in Dayton neighborhoods that led to the mass exodus of capital and amenities in these areas. This poster explains why this change occurred, the consequences of those changes, as well as potential changes that could occur to desegregate the population from wealthy suburban and poorer urban populations.
