Segmenting Tactics of Road-Building

Have a look at the image above of the stranglehold that I-66 could have on Kentucky. When this snake-in-segments was popular during the American Revolution, the message was “JOIN OR DIE!” Today the message is..”JOIN AND DIE!”
The above diagram shows the illegal segmenting of I-66 in Kentucky. By slicing up this “Megaproject” into individual segments also known as “salami tactics” officials do not have to address the overall total cost and impact of the entire road, only individual portions of it at any given time. 
THIS IS ILLEGAL WHEN DEALING WITH FEDERAL HIGHWAY FUNDS!
And NOW  they’re saying “its just independent segments!
