Green Infrastructure 4: Best Practices for Pavement

This course is one of an eight course series on Green Infrastructure that provides a template for design and implementation of Green Building concepts as they apply to cities and municipalities.

This 3-hourinteractive online course gives you the information and action items to assess sites and identify opportunities to use Best Management Practices (BMPs) in “Green” planning, design and construction. You'll get:

  • Pavement lifecycle
  • Pervious vs. impervious pavement
  • Albedo or Reflectivity of pavement
  • Pavement materials
  • A materials program
  • Material applications

The other courses included in the "Green Building for Infrastructure" series are:

  • Green Infrastructure 1: Introduction to High Performance Guidelines
  • Green Infrastructure 2: Best Practices for Site Assessment
  • Green Infrastructure 3: Best Practices for Streetscape
  • Green Infrastructure 5: Best Practices for Utilities
  • Green Infrastructure 6: Best Practices for Stormwater Management
  • Green Infrastructure 7: Best Practices for Landscape
  • Green Infrastructure 8: Best Practices for Construction Practices

It is recommended that you take the Introduction course before taking the Best Practices courses.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe Green Building Best Practices as they apply to Pavement
  • Develop a program of strategies to maximize pavement lifecycle citywide
  • Develop a citywide pavement management system to ensure that the entire roadway system is performing as well as possible at all times
  • Arrange a pavement management system with other citywide infrastructure planning processes
  • Explain reduced impervious pavement area
  • Describe the benefits of maximized pavement reflectivity
  • Discuss the advantages of pervious pavements
  • Identify recycled and reclaimed materials in infrastructure construction
  • Explain reducing the use of virgin asphalt concrete material and redirect waste material from landfills by using recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) or other recycled materials in asphalt concrete
  • Use the course material to develop your own checklists to improve existing policies and procedure
