Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on the Environment. Task 91. Synthesis of Transportation Exclusions to Section 106 Review

Federal transportation agencies and their state and local transportation partners are increasingly challenged to deliver projects faster, at a reduced cost, and with fewer staff. The goal of this research is to compile PAs and exemptions so that agencies can take advantage of applicable concepts that may already be in place. These concepts can benefit project schedules and save taxpayers considerable expense. Further, by reducing the number of undertakings that enter the Section 106 process, more focus can be directed towards reducing the effects of undertakings warranting review. This mandate is urgent, and a synthesis of exemptions will contribute significantly to satisfying the immediate need to "work smarter" in Section 106.
