Seventy years ago, planners and politicians sold highways as progress, essential to future prosperity. Today, division, disinvestment, and dangerous driving are known to be the true effects highways have on the communities around them.

Join journalist Megan Kimble as she shares insights on the freeway fighting movement from her new book, City Limits: Infrastructure, Inequality, and the Future of America’s Highways. City Limits explores what’s at stake in places facing new highway projects, like Austin, Houston, and Dallas, and considers another way forward: what if we removed dividing highways altogether?

Webinar attendees will learn about the following:

  • How America’s ever-expanding highways accelerate inequality and fracture communities.
  • The work of community advocates to create more livable cities and neighborhoods in the face of highway expansions. 
  • Places where removing highways has brought new life to a divided communities.
