How to Transform an Urban Highway into a Walkable Boulevard

Juan Mullerat and Steve Wright run an urban design firm called PlusUrbia. In this interview hosted by Rachel Quednau, they talk about their newest project, helping to transform an urban highway --Calle Ocho in Little Havana, Miami-- back into a walkable boulevard.

Juan and Steve discuss their personal histories living in this neighborhood, the importance of involving the community in the decision-making process, and their ideas for including multimodal and wheelchair-accessible options in the new street design.
