How Transportation Can Help Create Healthy, Vibrant Communities

The intersection of transportation and healthy living is coming to the forefront in many communities. The connection between active movements to improve health outcomes is becoming increasingly apparent and has a strong connection to the availability of public infrastructure to support every day activities. There are different and unique approaches to completing streets for municipalities of varying sizes and development patterns to support vibrant communities. Through examples of partnerships with non-traditional stakeholders and the community, learn about multi-disciplinary approaches to complete streets, based on health and engineering. Leave inspired to create new transportation plans and policies for development in areas and corridors incorporating all modes.
