We work to enable and accelerate these efforts. We provide tools, information, and assistance to support cities, counties, state Departments of Transportation (DOTs), and others working to build transportation systems that expand mobility choices while creating strong and prosperous communities.
We do this by helping communities come together, often in partnership with state DOT’s, to plan and implement programs, policies, and projects that result in safe, connected, and multimodal transportation systems. We focus on three areas of opportunity:
Great streets are the foundation of a healthy, multimodal transportation system, and further add to the vitality of our downtowns and neighborhoods. We bring a community together to identify ways to create streets that are safe, accessible, connected, and support a healthy local economy.
MAIN STREET AS A STATE HIGHWAY
Communities and state Departments of Transportation (DOTs) are commonly confronted with an array of challenges when a highway runs through a downtown, along a main street, or through other neighborhoods. We help communities and DOTs come together to create balanced solutions that address transportation needs and community goals.
RESHAPING COMMERCIAL CORRIDORS
A growing number of communities are looking to reshape outdated commercial strips into more vibrant and walkable places. We bring a community together to craft a vision for those areas and identify the strategies and actions to make it happen.
