TRB Webinar: Considering Quality of Life in Transportation Planning and Development

There is a direct relationship between transportation investments and community resilience, equity, and sustainability. TRB will host a webinar on Thursday, August 25, 2022 from 12:30 – 2:00 p.m. Eastern that will explore how transportation agencies and state departments of transportation (DOTs) have ensured that quality-of-life considerations are comprehensively incorporated into community planning and project development processes through guidebooks, procedures, best practice research, and training. Presenters will also highlight experiences with developing and refining resources designed to incorporate community resources and impacts into transportation decision-making and project planning processes.

This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Standing Technical Committee on Community Resources and Impacts.
