Streets as Places II: Making it Happen!

Streets as Places II: Making it Happen! focuses on streets as drivers of livability, innovative implementation strategies, and community and agency benefits of this approach. Streets as Places is a concept that seeks to rediscover the idea that streets can serve many purposes beyond mobility. Cities around the US are rapidly implementing public plaza programs, parking space to public space conversions, and other transformative strategies towards transportation infrastructure. Such rethinking of streets as outdoor rooms is having an impact on traffic flow, economic development, and livability. This webinar discusses the corresponding policies, reasoning, and ground-level impacts.

The webinar was held on Tuesday, March 4th, 2014, from 3:00 PM EST, and was brought to you by FHWA, in partnership with the Project for Public Spaces and Sevatec.

In Streets as Places II, you'll learn how CSS and Streets as Places reconnect transportation agencies with their customers and their mission, while creating great communities.
