At Road's End presents new models for transportation planning, describes effective strategies for resolving community disputes, and offers inspiration by clearly demonstrating that new ways of planning and implementing transportation systems can work. The book highlights case studies from around the country where plans to build more freeways are being scrapped or modified by new coalitions of environmentalists, developers, and community leaders; progressive transportation planners and officials are redefining transportation corridors to include more than roads; and communities are enhanced by bike paths, pedestrian ways, and reduced urban sprawl.
