“Confessions of a Recovering Engineer: Transportation for a Strong Town.” – 6/7 – Online

June 7 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

 
 

 

Charles Marohn, professional engineer and founder of the Strong Towns movement, lifts the curtain on America’s transportation system in this free, live webcast.

LOCATION: Zoom | DATE: June 7, 2022 | TIME: 12 p.m. CT

In this webcast—a special offering during Member Week at Strong Towns—Charles Marohn will demonstrate how the values of engineers and other transportation professionals are applied in the design process, and how those priorities differ from the values of the general public. By showing how transportation investments are a means to an end and not an end unto themselves, Marohn reveals how the standard approach to issues like fighting congestion, addressing speeding, and designing intersections only makes transportation problems worse, at great cost in terms of both safety and resources.

By contrast, the Strong Towns approach to transportation focuses on bottom-up techniques for spending less and getting higher returns, all while improving quality of life for residents of a community. This presentation is based on Marohn’s newest book, Confessions of a Recovering Engineer,
