The Road Information Program, other members of the highway construction industry, and the American Highway Users Alliance are gearing up for the release of "Building Better Communities: A Tool Kit for Quality Growth" in order to provide members of the highway construction industry with research-based facts and talking points that can be used to address issues such as smart growth and sprawl. The most important aspect of the tool kit is that it is based on feedback received from focus groups conducted in six cities. The tool kit will be issued with specific fact sheets on the following areas: traffic congestion, air quality, transit, the automobile providing freedom and opportunity, traffic calming, and transportation planning. The kit also includes case studies on the following: the European Model; Portland, Oregon; Los Angeles, California; and Washington, D.C. Another key section of the kit describes how to build coalitions and how to effectively deal with the media.
