Sustainable Highways Initiative

Resource: Sustainable Highways Initiative

 The Sustainable Highways Initiative is an effort designed to improve the sustainability of US roadways, to develop effective working practices and to establish standards for using and measuring sustainability. It facilitates understanding of how transportation infrastructure investments have long-lasting implications, not only on the transportation system, but also on the larger environmental, economic, and social systems with which transportation interacts.
View their Infrastructure Voluntary Evaluation Sustainability Tool (INVEST) to understand how programs are evaluated in their ability to include sustainability practices.
