Governmental agencies are under increasing pressure to mitigate the global warming impact of our infrastructure systems. This objective, however, must be carefully balanced with other performance metrics of interest (e.g., pavement condition) for agencies. This presentation will highlight recent work aimed at understanding these tradeoffs for managing infrastructure systems at both the facility- and network-level. Through a series of case studies, this presentation will highlight key takeaways and opportunities for future research.
