Webinar – American Highways Are Being Removed: What’s Next? – 2/4

February 4 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Embarcadero

Since 1987, more than 20 urban highway segments have been removed from downtowns, neighborhoods and waterfronts, mostly in North America.

 

The pace of removals has picked up significantly since 2008, the year the Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) launched its Highways to Boulevards program, and an additional 10 highways are now planned for removal in the U.S. Join the Maryland Department of Planning, Smart Growth Network and CNU at 1 p.m. Tuesday, February 4, for the second part in a series on urban highway removal.

 

This session will examine what happens after a community agrees that a highway will be removed, focusing on Rochester, New York, which is planning new affordable housing, services, retail and transportation options in the wake of removing the Inner Loop. Panelists include Erik Frisch, Manager of Special Projects, and Anne DaSilva Tella, Assistant Commissioner of the Department of Neighborhood & Business Development for the City of Rochester, NY; and Benjamin Crowther, Congress for the New Urbanism. Participants of the live webinar are eligible for 1.5 AICP CM credits. Register via the link below.
