Investing in Today and Tomorrow

Sustainability best management practices can help State and local public agencies improve use of their economic, social, and environmental resources. However, integrating sustainability best practices into State departments of transportation procedures can be daunting. This article describes efforts of the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) to move from identifying sustainable strategies to implementing and operating a Sustainable Transportation Program within its core administrative, planning, design, construction, operations, and maintenance activities. ADOT conducted trials of INVEST, an FHWA-developed web-based tool that employs multidisciplinary criteria to evaluate sustainability practices.
