Two nationally respected transportation engineers with around 30 years or more of experience each will discuss fostering a more multidisciplinary design approach to transportation planning. Walter Kulash, P.E., currently an independent public-interest transportation engineer, will discuss how the existing transportation planning process fosters induced traffic (the more roads governments build, the more car trips people take); what happens if induced traffic is not accommodated; state-of-the-art methods for predicting induced traffic; and a case study of the induced traffic argument made in the legal challenge to the Miami SR 836 expansion. G. Wade Walker, P.E., Hon. ASLA, Senior Principal Engineer with Kittelson & Associates in Orlando, will provide detailed case studies on the effects of "road diets" in Memphis and Chattanooga, TN and Charlotte, NC.
