Letter from the Newark Area Planning Association (NAPA) to John Kohl, Commissioner of the NJ Dept. of Transportation, regarding the planned development of Route 75 in Newark. The letter is signed by several members of the Community Transportation Coalition, a group formed to unite civil rights organizations in the fight against the highway development. Route 75, an eight lane highway planned to run North to South, would have cut the Central Ward in half and displaced thousands of Black and Puerto Rican residents.
