“FHWA’s Sustainable Pavements Program and Future Outlook”

ABSTRACT: The FHWA launched the Sustainable Pavements Program in 2010 to advance the knowledge and practice of sustainability related to pavements. The overall objective is to establish a program that considers asphalt, concrete, granular, and other materials in pavement systems including new and emerging materials. A critical outcome of the program is to increase the awareness, visibility, and the body of knowledge of sustainability considerations in all the life cycle phases of pavement systems through reference materials, technology transfer, and the Sustainable Pavements Technical Working Group (SP-TWG). 

BIO: Mr. Wagner is the Team Manager for the FHWA Pavement and Materials Technical Services Team.  His main areas of expertise include implementation of Asphalt Technologies and the Mechanistic Empirical Pavement Design Guide.  He has worked with all 50 State Highway Agencies in the development, deployment and adoption of these technologies. 

Ms. Jurado is the RC contact for the Sustainable Pavements Program and a member of the Sustainable Pavements Technical Working Group. Ms. Jurado has an extensive experience in the field of transportation and nondestructive testing; she served as the Resource Center lead for the SHRP2 R06 C Pave IR project. Ms. Jurado worked as a Research Engineer under the FHWA Professional Developmental Program (PDP), at Turner Fairbank Highway Research Center, where she worked with the Portable Seismic Property Analyzer (PSPA) and the Accelerated Load Facility (ALF). As an Area Engineer for the New Mexico Division, she served as the Local Public Agency (LPA) Coordinator for the NM State LPA Program and pavement and materials collateral duties.
