Advancing Equity by Reconnecting Communities, Presented by HNTB
Join us during the AASHTO 2021 Annual Meeting.
AASHTO and its state DOT members acknowledge the actions of the past—in programming, planning, design, construction, operations, and maintenance of state transportation systems—which often disproportionally negatively affected low-income communities, minority neighborhoods, and people of color. This session will discuss federal efforts to reconnect communities separated by infrastructure barriers by examining policy design and funding considerations, including flexibility to consider needs in both urban and rural areas and the role of owners and operators of infrastructure such as state DOTs.
HNTB’s Diana Mendes, Corporate President, Infrastructure & Mobility Equity, will moderate this session and will be joined by:
- Paul Ajegba, Director, Michigan DOT
- Marie Therese Dominguez, Commissioner, New York DOT
- Shoshana Lew, Executive Director, Colorado DOT
- Bill Panos, Director, North Carolina DOT
