American Society of Civil Engineers, Nov 9, 2010 - Technology & Engineering - 503 pages
Proceedings of the 2010 Green Streets and Highways Conference, heldØin Denver, Colorado, November 14?17, 2010. Sponsored by the Transportation & Development Institute of ASCE.
This collection contains 40 papers discussing the state of the art in sustainable roadways.ØToday's world of highway and local street planning and design concerns traffic and civil engineers but also transportation planners, environmental engineers, and regulators. Interdisciplinary teams are needed to address complex multimodal planning, regional environmental issues, context-sensitive solutions, climate change, green rating systems, economic development, and other emerging and often changing issues. Green Streets and Highways is a major step forward and will be the foundation ofØefforts to develop transportation systems that are truly sustainable.Ø
Topics include:sustainable and integrated planning and design, green pavements and construction materials, watershed and environmental planning and design, and rating systems.
Papers include research on specific areas as well as strategies for the integration and management of sustainable design approaches. This collection will be valuable to practitioners, industry professionals, regulators, educators, and researchers.ØØ
