Watch the recording of T4America’s discussion on USDOT’s rulemaking on traffic congestion performance measures

congestion webinarYesterday, Transportation for America hosted an online event to discuss USDOT’s recently announced transportation performance rulemaking on measuring traffic congestion and its implications for communities nationwide.

The rule will govern how states and metro areas will have to measure and address congestion, along with freight movement and emissions. These new requirements will help measure what America’s transportation dollars are actually buying us—which is great, except the rule as currently written would measure success in outdated ways.

Watch the archived version of yesterday’s webinar to learn more about the rulemaking and the critical ways it can be improved.

Then, take action by calling on USDOT to change what’s included in the rule. Click here to sign and send a letter that we (along with Smart Growth America) will deliver in person to USDOT before the comment period closes.
