Reimagining Urban Highways, program, Philadelphia, 2/23
Feb 23 in Philadelphia
After decades of disinvestment, many American cities are rebounding and growing their cultural, economic, and environmental assets. Despite their renewal, cities such as Philadelphia, New York, New Orleans, and St. Louis are saddled with highways located in their increasingly popular downtowns.
How should cities change highways to meet 21st-century needs and contemporary urban lifestyles? This panel discussion will look at successful urban highway removal projects in Milwaukee, New Haven, and Providence and explore ways of mitigating highways in Philadelphia and the Bronx.
Moderator: Aaron Naparstek, Loeb Fellow, Harvard University; Streetsblog
* Ashwin Balakrishnan, Southern Bronx River Watershed Alliance
* Thomas Deller, City of Providence
