Throughout the Rocky Mountain west, transportation policies and investments continue to prioritize vehicular traffic over—and often at the expense of—other modes of transportation.
Unfortunately, the region’s transportation systems are not only a symptom of sprawl, they create it. This outdated model drives sprawl and presents major obstacles to creating livable communities.
Great streets are the foundations of great places. We cannot build better places or more livable communities without improving our local transportation systems. Healthy local economies need safe transportation systems that connect the community and work for everyone.
