Book Talk: Roadways for People

Digital Discourse


People walking on street closed to automobile access, Noe Street, San Francisco

How can we create transportation solutions that serve people rather than cars? It’s a question answered in the latest book by Lynn Peterson, former head of the Department of Transportation in Washington State. Come hear her talk about the lessons she learned while playing an instrumental role in the largest transportation bill in that state’s history and the ways in which a community-solutions approach to transportation engineering and planning empower transportation professionals and policymakers to address the transportation needs of historically marginalized community members.
