Taking Back Bifurcated Corridors

Sunday, July 10 | 2-3 p.m. ET

Presenters

  • Cathy LaFata, HDR
  • Joshua Salazar, HDR
  • Kimberly Webb, Metro Region Engineer, Michigan Department of Transportation

Our communities strive to provide an environment to thrive. There’s a positive trend to seek equity for members in our communities and address a sad history in the United States of transportation networks dividing and sabotaging minority communities for the sake of progress. Many years later, there have been bold attempts by engaged communities and transportation agencies to build up these legacy communities during infrastructure reinvestment opportunities. Multi-modal examples will be presented as case studies of progressive advancement of equitable investment programs in these historically bifurcated corridors, including MDOT’s I-375 in Detroit, and BART and Capitol Corridor’s Link21 Program in northern California.
