Illinois Department of Transportation Wetland and Stream Mitigation Needs Assessment, Phase I

In Illinois, construction projects are subject to both state and federal environmental compliance requirements. Any wetlands that are impacted by construction projects must be restored, created or enhanced elsewhere through a process called wetland mitigation. This project aims to document the needs, gaps and inefficiencies in IDOT’s approach to wetland mitigation as well as develop potential solutions. Developing IDOT policies and procedures for wetland mitigation banking will allow the agency to better plan for environmental mitigation as well as streamline construction projects.
