Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on the Environment. Task 50. Finding the Carrot Instead of the Stick - Incentive-Based Approaches for Environmental Compliance

Planning, construction, and operations of transportation projects frequently ignore environmental goals, including community desires and needs, until there is an adverse reaction. If there were a scoping framework to redefining the purpose transportation project at the outset and identifying comprehensively all relevant needs/purposes/benefits, then the project could be supported and empowered by multiple constituencies. The Objective of this research is to develop incentive based examples for DOT's to use as they develop their programs.</font></p>
