Building Boondoggles: How Highway Expansions Undermine Public Transit, Walking and Biking

In this webinar hosted by the Coalition for More Responsible Transportation, learn from expert presenters why bigger, wider roads won’t solve Wisconsin’s transportation problems.

Policymakers often present costly highway expansions as a critical solution to gridlocked traffic and unsafe roadways. But decades of evidence show that building bigger roads makes congestion worse. We also know that highway expansions negatively impact public health and safety, disproportionately harm low-income and minority communities, and undermine alternative forms of transportation in a variety of ways. Learn from expert presenters why bigger, wider roads won’t solve Wisconsin’s transportation problems. This webinar, hosted by the Coalition for More Responsible Transportation, features presentations by Beth Osborne, Director of Transportation for America, Milwaukee environmental attorney Dennis Grzezinski, and Eau Claire City Councilman Jeremy Gragert.
