Innovative roadways can be highly synergistic tools for UBI mitigation and the use of cryogenics within an elevated road is explored here.



Innovative urban roads designs can help in the reduction of emissions/fuel use, UHI and overall environmental health and safety of the city. Also, the use of cryogenics, as a central design feature, can open up the use of highly profitable subsystems, such as the use of imbedded server farms, and other important energy management systems within the overall construct.

The CTELAA concept explores how an expandable cryogenic based elevated roadway, which works around many of the typical roadway construction restrictions, can be deployed within the City of Cambridge, Mass., specifically along the Fresh Pond Parkway ending at a river bend CHARLII.
