Created: 8/01/2017 - Updated: 7/22/2019


This document has been prepared to provide guidance to the pavement community on sustainability considerations in pavement systems, drawing from and synthesizing the large and diverse body of technical information that exists on the subject. Sustainability considerations throughout the entire pavement life cycle are examined (from material extraction and processing through the design, construction, use, maintenance/rehabilitation, and end-of-life phases) and the importance of recognizing context sensitivity and assessing trade-offs in developing sustainable solutions are emphasized. Key points from each of the eleven chapters contained in the document are summarized in the following sections.
