#NoNewRoads is our campaign to stop unnecessary and unaffordable spending on highways and roads.

Why #NoNewRoads? Because Strong Towns advocates for financial solvency and productive land use in American cities. The national obsession with an ever-expanding road system based on inaccurate projections has led many communities into serious debt, all for the sake of a road system with little financial return. We have built more auto infrastructure than we are willing to pay to maintain, and yet we insist on building more.

At Strong Towns, we believe that a transportation system should be a means of creating prosperity in a community, not an end unto itself. Before America spends more on transportation, we must modernize our transportation finance system to get better returns on our investments.
