“Residents of Mulk[e]y Square, a low-income neighborhood on the city’s west side, face large scale displacement by a new interstate highway (I-635). Many houses have been demolished, many others stand empty. For the people who remain, life goes on with little change. Billy Watkins, one of the children of a biscuit worker’s family, passes a run-down apartment building on his way home. The tenants have gone, the building is closed.”
