Fostering Livability on Commercial Highways and Arterial Streets is pleased to present a free webinar entitled "Fostering Livability on Commercial Highways and Arterial Streets." The webinar explores strategies to improve the walkability, livability, and functionality of automobile-oriented commercial corridors. Such roadways are often challenged with conflicts between pedestrians and motorists, congestion, and traffic safety issues.

The webinar, held on Thursday, March 3, 2016 from 2:00PM to 3:30PM EST, is brought to you by FHWA, in partnership with the Project for Public Spaces and Sevatec.
