Several transportation experts will discuss the region’s traffic, parking and mobility issues at a forum Tuesday night in downtown Charleston.

As the area continues to grow, transportation pressures are increasing on the peninsula. Both local and national experts will discuss progressive approaches and alternative solutions to these concerns, according to a news release.

Alternate modes of transportation by car, bike, public transit and walking will be considered.

Rick Williams, executive director of Go Lloyd, a nonprofit transportation management association in Portland, Ore.; Terry Shook, founding partner and principal of Shook Kelley, a planning and design firm in Charlotte; and Tim Keane, director of planning, preservation and sustainability with the city of Charleston, will speak at the event.

The Historic Charleston Foundation will host the Peninsula Mobility Forum at the Charleston Musical Hall, 37 John St., at 7 p.m., tomorrow.
