Sustainable Highways Initiative

The Sustainable Highways Initiative (SHI) supports programs and activities conducted across the Federal Highway Administration to facilitate balanced decisionmaking among environmental, economic, and social values — the triple bottom line of sustainability. SHI efforts help transportation agencies expedite project delivery, advance economic growth, enhance accessibility, and build projects to last, while also addressing the impacts of transportation to the human and natural environments.
