There is a direct relationship between transportation investments and community resilience, equity, and sustainability. TRB hosted a webinar on Thursday, August 25, 2022 from 12:30 – 2:00 p.m. Eastern that explored 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 also highlighted experiences with developing and refining resources designed to incorporate community resources and impacts into transportation decision-making and project planning processes.

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