Even today, many of our country’s transportation investments increase congestion, deepen inequality and worsen both local air pollution and our climate crisis. What do we need to do at the state, regional and local levels to make sure that our transportation spending aligns with our climate, equity and public health goals?

Join us to talk about the ongoing efforts and strategies being undertaken to focus transportation spending towards projects that can have a greater social, economic and environmental impact than simply adding another lane to a highway.
