This wiki is a tracing of the effects of the national trend in highway construction and the dominance of the automobile in the city of Providence Rhode Island, specifically the constitution of the Interstate 95 and how it utterly defines urban activity and landscape. It is an exploration of the Interstate 95 as an entity and the relationships that it is composed of and how its deployment defines the city of Providence, what spaces are destroyed and created, what actions are allowed and inhibited.
Other sections of this wiki look at the Interstate 95 in Providence by specific roles that it fills or work that it does...
