Sustainable Highways Self-Evaluation Tool

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is launching an initiative to support transportation agencies in making highway projects more sustainable. This new initiative provides a practical tool for integrating sustainability best practices into transportation projects and programs. It is the fi rst tool of its kind to encompass the entire life cycle of a transportation project – from system and project planning through design, construction, and operations and maintenance. The tool is innovative in that it is a selfevaluation tool that allows users to assess for themselves how sustainable their programs or projects may be. Participation in the initiative and application of the tool are voluntary, allowing users to determine for themselves how best to achieve a desired level of sustainability in their programs and projects.
