In this video segment from Journey to Planet Earth: Extreme Realities, innovations in architectural engineering demonstrate how low cost environmental design can lessen wind and flood damage in the event of extreme weather due to climate change. Currently, extreme weather events impacting coastal areas around the world cost a total of $6 billion per year in damage. Investment into green technologies like state-of-the-art sea walls, climate-ready buildings, floating homes, and floodgates can prevent a one trillion dollar loss per year and reduce an area’s vulnerability to extreme weather events in the future.

Old Red Trail | Construction Changes

Early road construction was time-consuming and expensive.  In 1959, road crews could lay out one mile of road a day at best. With today’s technology and equipment, paving and grading roads is much easier and faster.  Construction of bridges required specialists who could design the river-spanning lengths.  In the 1960s, road construction cost $400,000 per mile of four-lane highway, including the cost of land, equipment, workers’ pay, bridges, and materials.  Today, roads cost more than four times that for two lanes in one direction, but they last 50% longer
