The Centre County Historical Society is hosting a forum for community members to learn about creative approaches to transportation infrastructure that are safe and efficient, protective of the natural environment and historical and cultural resources, and aligned with community values. As the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is studying several alternative corridors to address transportation issues in south Centre County, impacts on local communities, farms, historic areas, ecosystems, scenic views, and more are of great concern. Dan Marriott, PhD. is an associate professor of landscape architecture at Penn State. He has advised transportation agencies across the United States on how they might address community needs and values in project design.
