Highway construction is the foundation of national strategic development and bears important responsibilities for social and economic development. With the rapid development of China's highway industry, the impact of the entire life cycle of highway construction, operation, and maintenance on resources and environment is increasingly deepening. The 14th Five Year Plan mentions green economic and social development, and the selection of highway routes lays the foundation for the environmental impact of the entire life cycle of highways, which is closely related to achieving sustainable development of highway construction. This article carries out the evaluation of the green degree of highway route selection in Jiangsu Province, and verifies the practical significance of the model through the design and route selection of the Nantong Ring Expressway, in order to guide the sustainable development of green highway construction in Jiangsu Province from the basic stage of route selection.
