Transportation megaprojects, such as rail extensions, are large, complex and expensive. Because they must be planned with skill and precision, their design has typically been left to transportation agencies. However, as cities begin to realize the often profound place-defining effects that these megaprojects have on the communities in which they're inserted, many local governments have taken it upon themselves to influence how this infrastructure is shaped. Come hear about why cities in the Bay Area are choosing to play a major role in how these important transportation projects are designed.
