Created by librarians from the Eastern Transportation Knowledge Network, this guide identifies resources in sustainability for practitioners in transportation operations planning, design and management. Innovative strategies, best practices, and solutions for achieving sustainability, and minimizing the impact of the transportation infrastructure on the environment, are presented in the guide.
The LibGuide is funded by FHWA Pooled Fund Study TPF-5(237), a collaborative effort benefiting the development of transportation library services and programs.
On the first wet nights of spring, thousands of amphibians migrate from their upland winter habitats to wetland breeding areas. Oftentimes these habitats are separated by roads, and in some areas over 50% of the animals are killed by traffic. Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) and Department of Fish and Wildlife are working together to mitigate traffic deaths, but need help locating crossing sites throughout the state.
