Land use and traffic congestion: The results of research in Arizona

July 17, 2012

A first-ever analysis of land-use and transportation demand in Arizona contradicts fears that compact, “smart growth” development, while beneficial in moderating demand, will increase localized congestion. The report, produced for Arizona DOT in March, also suggests that traditional travel demand modeling is outmoded, unable to reflect land use effects on demand, and it disputes notions that compact development is inequitable and costly.

Join the report author, Richard Kuzmyak, and Arizona DOT Director John Halikowski as they discuss the genesis of the report and how Arizona plans to use the research results.

A recording of the webinar is available here.
