The FHWA launched the Sustainable Pavements Program in 2010 to advance the knowledge and practice of sustainability related to pavements. The overall objective is to establish a program that considers asphalt, concrete, granular, and other materials in pavement systems including new and emerging materials. A critical outcome of the program is to increase the awareness, visibility, and the body of knowledge of sustainability considerations in all the life cycle phases of pavement systems.
This section provides access to the sustainable pavements reference document and other stand-alone articles from the document that cover key topics and core ideas.
This section provides access to the Tech Briefs discussing the key concepts related to key pavement sustainability topics. Information and presentation materials on past and upcoming webinars on sustainable pavements are also provided.
Technical Working Group
The FHWA established a Sustainable Pavements Technical Working Group (SP TWG) comprised of diverse stakeholders in the pavement and materials community including individuals from State Departments of Transportation and other public agencies, industries, and academia. The focus of the SP TWG is to provide technical input on sustainability specific to pavement systems and pavement materials.
