Streamlining Transportation Corridors Planning Processes and Validating the Application of Commercial Remote Sensing and Spatial Information (CRS-SI) Technologies for Envionmental Impact Assessments

A segment of I-69 from I-55 near Hernando, MS to US 51 385 near Millington, TN provides an ideal testbed to implement the proposed use of new and innovative technologies for quantifying benefits versus traditional approaches to transportation infrastructures planning for corridor of national significance for which an environmental impact statement (EIS) has been recently completed. New and innovative approaches include multi-source remote sensing (RS) data and analysis for rapid evaluation of transportation corridor alignment options, screening of non-viable alternatives, and identification of environmentally sensitive areas and quantification of impacts; advanced transportation modeling of normal and emergency operations; and new global positioning system (GPS) technologies to enhance field data collection.
