'Every Place Counts' to Reconnect Neighborhoods

DOT recently launched the Ladders of Opportunity Every Place Counts Design Challenge, which encourages four U.S. cities—Spokane, WA; Philadelphia; Nashville, TN; and St. Paul-Minneapolis—to reimagine existing transportation projects to reconnect neighborhoods isolated by the construction of interstate highways.

DOT employees and other experts held two-day workshops in each of the four cities to help communities and decision-makers work together to develop context-sensitive design solutions that reflect and incorporate the input of the people and communities they impact.

The program does not have a funding component, DOT Secretary Anthony Foxx said; its goal is to increase the visibility of the problem, which could lead to the use of public and private funding already available for transportation.
