Restoring Community Connections Through Highway Redesign

Please join the Olmsted Network on Monday, June 10, at 3 pm ET for a discussion on how roadway redesign projects can reverse the negative consequences of 1960s urban renewal. We’ll hear from three national experts— landscape architect Sara Zewde, city planner Peter Park and urban designer Cindy Zerger

As cities across the country debate highway redesign, the Olmsted Network has weighed in on two recent roadway discussions. In Buffalo, NY, our comments advocated for the full restoration of Olmsted’s historic Humboldt Parkway (NY 33). In Milwaukee, WI, our recent op-ed called for an at-grade solution near Olmsted’s historic Washington Park.  

This webinar aims to bring community members and leaders together with experts for a helpful discussion on the popular approaches and opportunities of contemporary roadway redesign across the country.  

The event is hosted by the Olmsted Network in partnership with Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy, Preservation Buffalo Niagara and East Side Parkways Coalition.
