TRB Task Force on Arterials and Public Health

Background and Purpose

The Transportation Research Board (TRB), an organization of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, has established a Task Force to inform the planning, design, construction and operation of arterial roads and corridors while considering public health. 

The purpose of the Task Force is to develop a vetted research agenda and catalog of problem statements aimed at informing the planning, design and operation of arterials while considering the implications to public health. It is anticipated that TRB committees, TRB subcommittees and others supportive of the Task Force would move the Task Force’s agenda forward into developed and fulfilled research.
