The Sandy Forks Road project was the 50th registered Greenroads project in the world and 45th certified since 2012. The project was a neighborhood collector street that was initiated by Raleigh City Council due to failing pavement and lack of mobility for pedestrians and bicycle traffic. The $9.9 million project included reconstruction of all existing pavement along a 1.3 mile corridor, including 3 major signalized intersections. The project included several environmental and sustainable initiatives and the City received support to use the project as a pilot in the Greenroads certification program. By using the Greenroads program, City staff evaluated the latest technologies and sustainable initiatives within the transportation industry. This presentation will include an overview of the project and the Greenroads certification requirements, most notably the credits pursued on this project, and lessons learned by the City that can be implemented on future projects. The Sandy Forks Road project received Silver Certification and is the highest scoring Greenroads project to date internationally.No Fields Found.
