Event Details

The Sustainable Transport and Climate Change Team within FHWA’s Office of Natural Environment, in coordination with the FHWA Sustainability Working Group, invites you to participate in the third of a series of webinars based on Advancing a Sustainable Highway System: Highlights of FHWA Sustainability Activities. The aforementioned report illustrates how sustainability has been incorporated into a wide variety of FHWA programs, projects, policies, processes, and partnerships.


This webinar will focus on Sustainable Pavements and is scheduled for Wednesday, July 29, from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM (EDT). Gina Alhstrom from FHWA's Office of Asset Management, Pavements, and Construction will give an overview of the Sustainable Pavements Program and highlight recent activities including the recently released Sustainable Pavements Reference Document. A sustainable pavement is one that achieves its specific engineering goals while meeting basic human needs; using resources efficiently; and preserving or restoring surrounding ecosystems. For FHWA, a sustainable approach to pavements means that decisionmakers make balanced and efficient choices among environmental, economic, and social values—the triple bottom line of sustainability—that will provide the best benefits to the natural and human environments now and into the future.

 

Please forward this information to your colleagues, as this webinar is open to the public. Registration for the event is optional, but the webinar room is limited to 100 participants and is first come, first served. A webinar recording will be posted to the Sustainable Highways Initiative website. For more information on the webinar series, click here or contact Connie Hill (connie.hill@dot.gov).
