North America has a new, high-scoring environmentally sound project thanks to porous asphalt paving design in the City of Tacoma, Washington. The Greenroads Foundation, headquartered in Washington, manages a third-party certification process that assesses the sustainability of transportation projects using the Greenroads Rating System. For 2020, the foundation has awarded the City of Tacoma’s East 40th Street Green Infrastructure Project the Greenroads Silver Certification.
This is the fifth certified Greenroads project in Tacoma, reinforcing the city’s commitment to environmental policy leadership. Tacoma is a Greenroads member and was the first to adopt a resolution establishing the city as a “Green Roads Community” by creating its roads and infrastructure as “models of environmental, economic and social stewardship,” according to Resolution 38945.
