Legal Problems Arising out of Highway Programs. Topic 10-6. Civil Rights Issues in Project Sitings

This project explored civil rights issues implicated by transportation siting decisions, including issues that arise under Executive Order 12898 (President's Environmental Justice Order), Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, and implementing regulations (49 U.S.C. 134 and 135). A survey of Court treatment of this issue was conducted. Andrew Biada, Assistant Attorney General, Maryland, was selected as the author for the study.
