The routing of Interstate 244 through Greenwood put an end to the revival of Black Wall Street. According to the Congress for the New Urbanism, “In 1942, Greenwood was home to 242 Black-owned businesses spread over 35 square blocks. The highway reduced that number to only a handful.” But federal money has been put toward a study that would involve rerouting the highway, giving advocates hope the neighborhood can be reclaimed.
