Sustainable Highways Strategic Outreach & Program Support

In support of the Office of Natural Environment's (HEPN) sustainable highways research that will develop criteria and tools for sustainable highways, HEPN will work with the Volpe National Transportation Systems Center (Volpe Center) for strategic outreach and program management support. The Criteria and Tools for Sustainable Highways Research (CTSH Research) being developed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), under a separate contract with CH2M Hill, will encourage the use of specific measures and approaches in the planning, project development, design and construction process and throughout a project's lifecycle that result in sustainable roadways. An evaluation tool is being designed to serve as a system for assessing the sustainability of roadway projects.
