What would an earlier start to that roadway between Cleveland's east side and University Circle mean?

NASA External Program Director Steve Sanderson provides some answers.

Tom Beres discusses these questions with Plain Dealer columnists Mark Naymik and Joe Frolik on this edition of Between the Lines.
