October 30, 2020 – Just as we cannot predict the post-pandemic future of office and related commercial uses, we cannot be certain of the nature of the transportation demands and facilities that will be necessary to enable and support those economic and social changes, and the altered urban growth patterns that are likely to emerge.

October 17, 2019 – Policy making, planning, and decision-making tools that were designed for the past may not be appropriate for assessing and addressing current and projected capital and operational transportation and transportation-related issues. In February 2019 Eno Center for Transportation with support from Reason Foundation convened a three-day workshop at the Pocantico Conference Center to explore these questions of governance and institutional reform in the transportation sector. This week Eno released a report of the discussions at the Workshop to identify significant issues, areas of common concerns, and broad themes that emerged.

President Donald Trump has proclaimed November “Critical Infrastructure and Resilience Month.” He is right to recognize the key role that infrastructure plays in assuring the nation’s health, security and prosperity. However, much of our critical infrastructure—especially transportation systems in coastal areas—is anything but resilient. We can change that by facing up to climate threats and designing our infrastructure accordingly.

Falling gasoline prices and rising vehicle miles traveled (VMT) over the past 12 months have stimulated discussion about what these recent trends foretell about economic impacts, life-style changes,and American travel patterns. There has, however, been less attention directed to the possible environmental impacts of these trends and what they might mean about global climate change.
