In my 30 years in the transportation business, starting as a highway engineer, I have learned one main lesson, streets must be built for people, not just cars. I am committed to land use and transportation connections, and creating great places and the great streets that lead us to them. The journey is not about just getting there, it is about the trip, and the people impacted on the way.
