Abstract
This thesis is an eutopian project: it examines what is with a sense of what should be to see what must be done. The project is a rerouting of Interstate 581 in

Roanoke, Virginia through a reinforced concrete tunnel from the Orange Avenue exit to the Elm Avenue exit with towers placed at intervals along the tunnel to provide

light. A reinforced concrete pedestrian bridge links the towers and provides a path from downtown Roanoke to the Civic Center.
