Transportation Summit 2013

Congress for the New Urbanism
Chicago, IL

The 2013 CNU Transportation Summit is being held in Chicago, IL, November 21-22, 2013. The summit is co-hosted by the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) in the Willis Tower at 233 S. Wacker Drive, Suite 800.

CNU Transportation Summits are meetings where experts gather to challenge the status quo of transportation engineering and advance the practice of new urbanist street design.

The summit will focus on advancing reforms through working groups. Over the two-day working meeting, groups will compile a cohesive to-do list for the future, as well as an immediate work plan for the next year.
