Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on the Environment. Task 63. Transportation Corridor Environmental Management Framework

Integrating environmental considerations into transportation planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operations is widely recognized as a complex and challenging undertaking. Since the passage of the National Environmental Policy (NEPA) and other environmental laws in the early 1970's, transportation agencies have been developing and using a wide variety of environmental management approaches to meet a vast array of environmental goals and requirements. These environmental management approaches have largely involved assessing, avoiding, minimizing, and mitigating the potential environmental effects of proposed transportation improvement projects on a project-by-project basis during the design and construction phases of managing the transportation system. The objectives of the proposed research are to: 1) conduct a synthesis of the state-of-the practice for transportation corridor environmental management and 2) develop a framework for improving corridor environmental management.<br /><br />
