This book demonstrates that roads do not have to be the enemy of sustainability: they can be designed to minimally impact the environment while improving quality of life. This book examines traditional, utilitarian methods of transportation planning that have resulted in a host of negative impacts: from urban sprawl and congestion to loss of community identity and excess air and water pollution. This book offers a better approach -- one that blends form and function. Through case studies and photos from around the country, this book provides an examination of all aspects of green roads, from transportation policy to the basics of road design, public involvement, road ecology, and the economics of sustainable roads. This comprehensive guide offers a practical strategy for rethinking how we design, plan, and maintain our transportation infrastructure.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Roads and parking lots in the United States cover more ground than the entire state of Georgia. The authors offer a practical strategy for designing, planning, and maintaining roads by incorporating cultural, natural, and visual resources.
