2012 CNU Transportation Summit Discussion with John Horsley and Jeff Tumlin


At the federal, state and local levels, there is increasing disagreement about the best way to spend our decreasing transportation dollars, and greater awareness of the negative impacts of poorly planned projects. As a result, highway engineers are concerned about their future, and confused by the way their profession is vilified by citizens and designers. Can New Urbanists help conventional highway engineers be more successful by introducing the importance of context, and adding new performance metrics for transportation decision-making? Can highway engineers find ways of moving cars to and through our communities while also enhancing property value and making places more pedestrian, bicycle and transit-friendly?

Listen in on Jeffrey Tumlin, urbanist and transportation planner from Nelson\Nygaard, and John Horsley, Executive Director of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, in this discussion from 2012 CNU Transportation Summit. And be sure to check out the videos from the Q&A Session that happened after the discussion. (Special thanks to Dan Burden for filming)
