Environmental Innovations – The highway industry utilizes innovative technologies which are environmentally-sound and applies sustainable approaches to pavement design and material selections, construction, preservation, and maintenance.

Workforce Capability - The highway industry workforce is well-trained, well-connected, qualified, and experienced to conduct environmentally-sound paving and material practices.


Perception needs continuous change

  • Industrial By-products are:
    • Fly ash from coal combustion
    • Slag aggregate from iron/steel production
  • Products are recyclable materials
    • Fly ash in concrete
    • Slag cement
    • Rubberized asphalt
  • NOT Linear Landfill – NOT WASTE
