NCHRP Research Report 916: The Road to Sustainable Highway Construction Practices

In 2016, researchers from the University of Washington, Michigan Technological University, and Greenroads International undertook National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Project 10- 91A to produce a sustainable highway construction guidebook. A guidebook is a common request for NCHRP, but the path that led to the end result—NCHRP Research Report 916: Sustainable Highway Construction Guidebook—offers some insight into the current status of sustainability in the highway construction industry. This article follows the story of how NCHRP Research Report 916 came to be and what the research team learned along the way.
