If Westway Were Proposed Today?
This concluding chapter considers the possibility of a similar project suffering the same fate as Westway in more contemporary times, analyzing more broadly the state of regulatory wars and what lessons Westway can offer regarding these. The chapter contends that while the context surrounding Westway's proposal and defeat no longer exists in current times, several elements illuminated by Westway's battles still remain. Westway's history provides insights into how such regulatory wars can be fought, but nothing in its tale confirms heroic expectations that citizens can alone always be there to protect the environment and check illegality. The chapter also provides further insights for future study.
