Join our own Aaron Call, PE, Principal and Ohio Engineering Manager, along with the City of Newark’s Nick Schultz, PE, Division of Engineering, and Brian Morehead, PE City Engineer, for an exploration of how an infrastructure project allowed City officials to rethink the pedestrian and vehicular experience through reconfiguring the roadway network, implementing new sidewalks and streetscape elements, and incorporating green infrastructure elements.
