On the Park Bench – Decoding DOT: Navigating Transportation

The Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) has recently relaunched On the Park Bench, weekly conversations with local government leaders, activists, researchers, students, and planners–touching topics from virtual public engagement, homelessness, real estate development, and the declining ownership society.

On the Park Bench – Decoding DOT: Navigating Transportation

Incorporating transportation and good design is essential for successful new urbanist projects. However, the path to implementation isn’t always clear – especially when navigating DOTs and career transportation officials. From level of service to traffic modeling, it can take an insider’s knowledge of engineering to get the job done when building walkable places.

Join CNU on Tuesday, August 4th for a panel of New Urbanist engineers, including Norm Marshall (Smart Mobility Inc.), Norman Garrick (Civil Engineer, UConn), Gary Toth (Project for Public Spaces), and Lucy Gibson (Toole Design), who will share their perspective on building walkable places, as well as their experience working with DOTs to unravel some of the more enigmatic practices.


This webinar is available for 1 CNU-A continuing education credit if viewed live or recorded.
