New tool INVEST-igates sustainability, demand

The results are in from a study assessing sustainability in corridor planning and project development, using an innovative online tool. WSDOT collaborated with the Federal Highway Administration to evaluate a new assessment tool called INVEST – Infrastructure Voluntary Evaluation Sustainability Tool. It provided insight to better integrate demand management and public health strategies into planning and project development.

FHWA developed the tool to help transportation agencies evaluate and improve the sustainability of their planning, project development, and operations and maintenance programs and processes.

WSDOT used INVEST to assess the unfunded portion of the SR 520 Bridge Replacement and HOV Program and three central Puget Sound corridor studies for US Highway 2, State Route 520 and State Route 516.  WSDOT will use the results to improve its sustainability practices and provide constructive feedback to FHWA.
