A programmatic approach to sustainable materials procurement in highway construction may be better than one-off attempts. For now, there is little guidance on procuring sustainability in highway construction and sustainability is not as important as cost or schedule.
The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Web-Only Document 262: Sustainable Highway Construction describes the research process and outcomes used to develop NCHRP Research Report 916: Sustainable Highway Construction Guidebook and a presentation that accompanies that Guidebook.
The Web-Only Document is also accompanied by a presentation of the materials.
