New York City is in a race against time when it comes to dealing with the fate and future of its highway system. As community-driven plans seek to reverse the legacy of Robert Moses-era highway construction, the city must also confront the reality that much of this infrastructure is in need of critical updates to extend its useful life and prepare New York for the future of mobility. Questions of design, engineering, freight transportation, congestion, community development, and environmental impact all converge when considering what the highways of the future will look like.
Join Open House New York and The Gotham Center for New York City History for a critical discussion about New York City’s highway system with Olga Gorbunova, Principal, Stantec; Owen Gutfreund, Associate Professor of Urban Affairs and Planning, Hunter College; and Adam Lubinsky, PhD, AICP, Managing Principal, WXY; moderated by Amy Plitt, Editor, Curbed NY.
