Cost & Green Calculator

Compare cost savings and environmental impact by treatment

An approach to pavement management that applies a robust toolbox of pavement preservation and recycling treatments will save time, money, and reduce environmental impact over the long-term.

Use this calculator to see average data comparing the cost and environmental savings of preservation and recycling techniques, compared to conventional reconstruction, mill and fill, or thin overlays.

Please note that these estimates are approximate and should not be used for emissions inventory or formal carbon footprinting exercises or project cost estimates.
