Mark Johnson will be presenting at the TRB webinar “Modern Roundabouts: Downtown and Suburban Revitalization.”
The webinar will be on Monday, September 18, 2017, from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM ET and will provide examples of ways the modern roundabout may be able to revitalize a downtown area, enhance a community’s sense of place, and provide a safer and more efficient traffic flow in urban and suburban areas. Presenters will describe how roundabouts have jumpstarted downtown revitalization, illustrate how roundabouts have enhanced communities, and demonstrate how roundabouts have improved traffic flow.
Two PDH credits are available. For more information or to register see TRB’s webinar page.
