The Advisory Council is growing as innovative leaders continue to learn about the work of The Ray. In 2014, The Ray first defined net-zero highways as highways with zero carbon, zero waste and zero deaths. It constructed its first project on the 18-mile Ray C. Anderson Memorial Highway one year later, in partnership with Georgia Department of Transportation. The Interstate 85 corridor in West Georgia is now the nation’s premier test bed for safe, smart and sustainable transportation.
