Project Description

Nannie Helen Burroughs Green Highways Project

The LID Center worked with DDOT on a multi-year Green Highways Partnership and LID grant to develop LID and Green Highways planning, design, construction, and maintenance procedures for use in urban areas. This was the first major Green Highways Project in the nation. The LID Center has developed a series of LID pilot designs that were incorporated into the streetscape plans. The pilot designs were used to evaluate what changes and modifications can be made to DDOT standards and specifications. In order to successfully integrate LID into future DDOT projects, the LID Center has worked with the other project consultants to coordinate the designs and determine the requirements of other design and construction specialties. The LID Center was the lead on the public outreach effort and developed techniques and criteria that can be used in future projects to demonstrate and educate the benefits of LID to the community.
