Location: Silver 3 - Tech Talks Stage
Title: The Ray - Creating the Highway of the Future
Description: Stretching over 18 miles of Georgia's I-85, The Ray is a proving ground for the technologies and innovations that will make our highways safer, smarter and more sustainable. Pilot projects such as a solar-powered EV charging station, solar-paved road, rubberized asphalt, roll-over tire safety station, and perennial wheat plots along the interstate give a glimpse into a greener future for infrastructure. By reducing emissions, improving safety, and nourishing its environment, The Ray demonstrates how America's roads can transition from the interstates and highways we are used to, to beneficial pillars of communities, connectivity and nature.
