Green Highways and Green Streets:America's 21st Century
Investing in Green Highways offers the opportunity to enhance the existing infrastructure and protect theenvironment while simultaneously generating new green jobs, creating demand for green technologies, andrevitalizing local neighborhoods. The Green Highways Partnership (GHP) is a partnership between the USEnvironmental Protection Agency, the Federal Highway Administration, and industry leaders that promotes theintegration and leveraging of resources and capacity to plan and build a sustainable and affordabletransportation network. Training and workshops on topics such as these are being developed through theGreen Highways Partnership Training and Development Center (GHP TDC).This workshop will introduce participants to the GHP Green Infrastructure Watershed Approach designconcepts and applications and show how engineers are actively using this program to help communities meettheir 21st Century infrastructure, jobs, and community development needs, while providing for improved stormwater management and environmental protection. Participants will gain information on new and valuableresources and programs.
Case studies and information from the experiences of engineers, municipal officials,and government agencies that have integrated these projects into their planning and construction process willbe used to illustrate the success of these new and innovative efforts.
