The Bay Area is one of the few places in the U.S. where urban freeways have been removed to enable a successful reunification of neighborhoods and a reconnection of the street grid. With I-980 in Oakland and a portion of I-280 in San Francisco being evaluated for possible removal, the focus is once again on our region as other municipalities wait to see how both cities might undertake these massive projects. Join us to discuss the lessons we can learn from urban freeway removal in the Bay Area and learn how the region can become a model for other cities. Co-presented by Congress for the New Urbanism.
