Jason, I also hate the sprawl projects in the SE end but that doesn't mean that the RHCE is bad... It means the politicians lied and decided to help out their developer friends (are you really that surprised?).

I just had to drive to the other office and as I was doing so, crossed both areas. I don't know the reason the city isn't doing those studies however simply using this as a confirmation of major problems isn't a logical conclusion. The corridor of the RHCE is much larger than that of Centennial as well. What I mean is that the number of people within say 300 meters of the roadway in each direction is far less than what's on Centennial which is densely populated on both sides by residential areas and shopping centres. Also, from my own experience aside from an hour or less around 530, the concentration of traffic is less on the highway itself. What might be a 15 minute trip top to bottom on Centennial through a densely populated corridor is now about 5 minutes on the RHCE through a wider swath of land. Like you, I'd love to see that data, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if that data simply shows that the pollution is now in a corridor that's less populated than Centennial.
