1 EVERY DAY COUNTS Gregory G. Nadeau FHWA Deputy Administrator

2 Every Day Counts Launched by FHWA Administrator, Victor Mendez, October 2010 Designed to: – Identify and deploy innovation aimed at shortening project delivery – Enhance the safety and performance of our highways and bridges – Improve environmental sustainability

3 “There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain of its success than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things… - Niccolo Machiavelli The Prince, 1532

4 Warm Mix Asphalt

5 Warm Mix Asphalt Usage Warm Mix Asphalt Usage Percentage of Total Asphalt Production in US source: National Asphalt Pavement Association ~22%+ ~25-30%

6 Impact of Warm Mix Asphalt In 2012… Savings of over 75 million gallons of fuel during production Reduction of CO 2 emissions by 2,000,000 tons (the equivalent to taking 375,000 vehicles off the road) 6

7 Impact of Warm Mix Asphalt If ALL asphalt paving was Warm Mix Asphalt… Savings of over 300 million gallons of fuel during production Reduction of CO 2 emissions by 8,000,000 tons (the equivalent to taking 1,500,000 vehicles off the road) 7

8 “The percentage of DOTs, agencies, and commercial mixtures using WMA more than doubled from 2009 to 2010 … its rapid adoption by highway agencies would not be possible without FHWA’s EDC initiative and focus on innovation. It’s with confidence that we move forward with WMA as "Every Day Practice". Kim Snyder Past Chairman, National Asphalt Pavement Assn.

9 Programmatic AgreementsLocally Administered Projects Certification / Qualification Program for LPAs Innovative Procurement for Engineering Services Innovative Partnering Geospatial Data Collaboration SHORTENING PROJECT DELIVERY

10 Construction Manager/ General Contractor Accelerated Bridge Construction Design Build INNOVATIVE CONTRACTING

11 3D Modeling for Construction Means and Methods Accelerated Bridge Construction Geosynthetic Reinforced Soil (GRS) Integrated Bridge Systems (IBS) Prefabricated Bridge Elements and Systems Slide-in Bridge Construction Intelligent Compaction REDUCING CONSTRUCTION TIME

12 High Friction Surfaces Intersection and Interchange Geometrics Level of NEPA Documentation and Quality First Responders Training (SHRPII) SAFETY ENVIRONMENTMOBILITY IMPROVING PERFORMANCE

13 Civil Integrated Management (CIM) “All parties to highway construction projects must work together and utilize emerging technologies for faster, better and smarter project delivery. CIM helps by assisting in the collection, organization, and accessibility of data and information….” Real Time Verification Alternative Contracting Surveying Project Management Systems Legal Utilities Information Modeling

14 Geospatial Data Collaboration Improving communications and information flow within the environmental process Facilitating data sharing among process participants Bridging between organizations to improve working relationships
