    Abstract

    Comprehensive rationality and disjointed incrementalism are among the decisionmaking models discussed in planning theory. But the practical relevance of this discussion has been questioned and concrete evidence of links between theory and practice is rare. The case of the planning of Highway 6 in Israel demonstrates this link. Litigation preceding implementation of the project provides documentary evidence, which includes a debate about the respective merits of comprehensive-rational planning and disjointed incrementalism as the way to plan this highway. It is shown that such strategic projects are not and cannot be planned incrementally. Analysis of this case suggests some conclusions concerning the timing and practical consequences of the choice between planning models, and the potential of a contingent framework to link theory to practice.
