  The Aspen Institute is hosting two traffic-experts in an open lecture Thursday about new solutions to the upper-valley’s congestion problems. Reporter Alycin Bektesh has been covering the Institute’s Community Forum on Transportation and Mobility and joins news director Carolyn Sackariason in conversation about the upper-valley’s long standing traffic woes.


John Bennett is the co-chair of the Institute’s Community Forum on Transportation and Mobility. He visited the studios to talk about the newest solutions to a problem he has been working on for decades, beginning with his time as Mayor of Aspen.

The lecture, featuring Ann Bowers and Chris Breiland of the transportation planning and engineering firm Fehr & Peers, is tonight, Thursday, March 9, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the McNulty Room in the Doerr-Hosier Center on the Aspen Meadows campus.
