What does it mean to build a sustainable corridor? How do you honor the overall goal of conserving resources, but also engage stakeholders to develop the right type of project for their community? Take a wider look at the national perspective on building sustainable corridors. What is being done across the country to conserve resources and involve communities in these efforts? Then hear stories about a successful sustainable corridor in Portland; Albuquerque's BRT project; and an urban green plan to transform existing park-and-ride lots along Los Angeles' growing transit network into more sustainable places.
