Advocacy to Action: Meeting the Challenges of the Next Generation

Join us in Portland, Oregon September 22-24, 2022* for Preserving the Historic Road International.  We welcome you back after four years of planning (and pandemic) to a new conference, with a dynamic new format, designed to meet the challenges for historic roads in the coming decades.  The NEW PHRI will engage you in direct conversations with experts, put you in the field with some of America’s greatest roads and invite you to reimagine how we identify, preserve and manage the next generation of historic roads.

To launch our new format, we’ll be inviting you to help us identify your historic road needs during an online PRE-CONFERENCE global dialogue.  Stay tuned!

* Please note, the website listed September 2021 as the next conference date. Due to Covid-19, the Conference Planning Committee postponed PHRI to 2022.  Your input after our 20th Anniversary Conference in Fort Collins, Colorado, in 2018, emphasized the importance of an in-person conference—our decision to move to 2022 was designed to maximize the conversations we know you value.  We look forward to seeing you, in person, in Portland, Oregon!
