Sustainability has become a key consideration in the development of roadway projects. Recently, a multitude of rating systems have been developed to assess how sustainable or “green” a roadway project is. This presentation will discuss a case study comparing three of the leading methodologies, the key sustainability elements considered in each and the effort level associated with project certification.
