The health impacts of traffic-related exposures in urban areas: Understanding real effects, underlying driving forces and co-producing future directions (2016)
Journal Article
Khreis, H., Warsow, K. M., Verlinghieri, E., Guzman, A., Pellecuer, L., Ferreira, A., …Nieuwenhuijsen, M. (2016). The health impacts of traffic-related exposures in urban areas: Understanding real effects, underlying driving forces and co-producing future directions. Journal of Transport and Health, 3(3), 249-267. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jth.2016.07.002

The world is currently witnessing its largest surge of urban growth in human history; a trend that draws attention to the need to understand and address health impacts of urban living. Whilst transport is instrumental in this urbanisation wave, it al...

Towards the Incorporation of Environmental Impacts into Pavement Management Systems (2015)
Journal Article
Pellecuer, L., Assaf, G., & St-Jacques, M. (2016). Towards the Incorporation of Environmental Impacts into Pavement Management Systems. Transport Reviews, 36(3), 361-382. https://doi.org/10.1080/01441647.2015.1079745

© 2015 Taylor & Francis. Environmental nuisances (such as greenhouse gases and noise) may be generated during the use phase of the pavement life cycle, with these known to significantly affect the environment. However, no attempt has yet been made... Read More about Towards the Incorporation of Environmental Impacts into Pavement Management Systems.

Influence of pavement condition on environmental costs (2014)
Journal Article
Pellecuer, L., Assaf, G. J., & St-Jacques, M. (2014). Influence of pavement condition on environmental costs. Journal of Transportation Engineering, 140(10), 04014050. https://doi.org/10.1061...%29te.1943-5436.0000721

Pavement conditions significantly influence the generation of nuisances that influence the environment and increase the costs borne by society. This paper presents a new tool designed to monetize and incorporate environmental impacts in decision-maki... Read More about Influence of pavement condition on environmental costs.

Life cycle environmental benefits of pavement surface maintenance (2014)
Journal Article
Pellecuer, L., Assaf, G. J., & St-Jacques, M. (2014). Life cycle environmental benefits of pavement surface maintenance. Canadian Journal of Civil Engineering, 41(8), 695-702. https://doi.org/10.1139/cjce-2013-0508

To achieve sustainable road networks, long-term environmental costs and benefits should be recognized and incorporated in the decision making process of pavement management units. This paper provides an assessment of life cycle environmental benefits... Read More about Life cycle environmental benefits of pavement surface maintenance.
