An Integrated Approach to Building Sustainable Roadways


This training introduces a new, six-step process for integrating sustainability into the planning, design and construction of roadway projects. This process is intended to fit within the existing design process and to remain flexible enough to apply to projects of different types and scale.

Some practitioners may be hesitant to incorporate sustainable solutions due to perceived higher costs and maintenance requirements. However, sustainable solutions are intended to save resources, bring long-term benefits, and make the surrounding environment "better than before."
