Where is the opposition to the re-design's addition of a 295 skyway?

Years later and still nothing upon mitigating the Anacostia Freeway by reconstructing it underground and extending a street grid atop to make the waterfront more accessible to neighborhoods east of the river.

For much info on the history of the area freeways , see my blog "A Trip Within The Beltway"- you might want to add it to your link list.
