Rogoff, Boston Mayor Host 'Beyond Traffic' Forum

DOT Under Secretary for ­Policy Peter Rogoff recently joined ­Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh at Boston University to host a session in a series of regional forums on DOT’s Beyond Traffic draft framework, a report that studies trends and options facing transportation infrastructure.

Beyond Traffic recognizes that the Northeast megaregion will be uniquely impacted by transportation challenges and opportunities in the next three decades,” Rogoff said.

By 2050, the population of the region—which includes Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, DC—is expected to increase by more than 35 percent. But as the condition of transportation infrastructure continues to worsen, leaders in the region will face critical investment decisions to accommodate this growth in population while preserving quality of life.

Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan, Connecticut DOT Commissioner James Redeker, A Better City CEO and President Richard Dimino, Boston Chief of Streets Chris Osgood and Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission Executive Director Barry Seymour also participated in the forum.

The draft report addresses such trends as a rapidly growing population, demographic shifts, a transportation system facing more frequent extreme weather events and increased gridlock nationwide. Click here and search on Beyond Traffic.
