Green Highways and Green Streets: America's 21st Century Infrastructure
Investing in Green Highways offers the opportunity to enhance the existing infrastructure and protect the environment while simultaneously generating new green jobs, creating demand for green technologies, and revitalizing local neighborhoods. The Green Highways Partnership (GHP) is a partnership between the US Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Highway Administration, and industry leaders that promotes the integration and leveraging of resources and capacity to plan and build a sustainable and affordable transportation network. Training and workshops on topics such as these are being developed through the Green Highways Partnership Training and Development Center (GHP TDC). This workshop will introduce participants to the GHP Green Infrastructure Watershed Approach design concepts and applications and show how engineers are actively using this program to help communities meet their 21st Century infrastructure, jobs, and community development needs, while providing for improved storm water management and environmental protection. Participants will gain information on new and valuable resources 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 will be used to illustrate the success of these new and innovative efforts.
