Building on fifteen years of Highways to Boulevards advocacy, the Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) assisted the U.S. Department of Transportation for the Ladders of Opportunity Every Place Counts Design Challenge, a federally funded initiative to reconnect neighborhoods and improve community health, mobility, and opportunity.
Created by Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx, the Every Place Counts Design Challenge provided technical assistance to repair the urban fabric in neighborhoods bifurcated by interstate highways. CNU supported implementation by leading expert-led design workshops in Every Place Counts Challenge communities, helping local stakeholders and elected officials to address infrastructure impediments and create design strategies for improved connectivity, greater mobility, and improved economic access.
