Re: “Stadium Way to be torn up again?” (letter, 3-5).

How do I, as a taxpayer, benefit from spending $165 million for this operation (Link light rail extension)? We have several bus routes connecting uptown with downtown, so why tear up Stadium Way, Division Avenue and Martin Luther King Way?

Just who is going to benefit from this? I smell a rat!
