At left, a historic photo from 1962 shows a swath of Portland centered at Broadway and Weidler that is cleared for construction of the I-5 freeway.

The proposal drew wide opposition for not addressing the economic development needs of the historic African American community which was first displaced by the freeway nearly 50 years ago
