A Company Is Trying To Build The First 'Sustainable Highway'

By Aimee Lutkin

Near the town of West Point, Georgia, an organization is supporting a length of road in an exciting experiment. Fast Company reports that the project is called The Ray, and it's an attempt to see if it's possible to build a sustainable highway. Located in a fairly rural area, The Ray's experiments with sustainable technology have been noted for their remarkable innovation.

The Ray is working with several solutions for how to make a stretch of road battle climate change. One road shoulder generates energy with a small solar farm.
