Accelerating Project Delivery

To aid in the implementation of the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) HEPE’s research program, HEPE requires support from multi-disciplinary teams to develop innovative strategies to expedite environmental reviews and accelerate project delivery. Services provided by the Volpe Center will be targeted at specific needs that will support FHWA work in accelerating project delivery as well as innovations in the environmental review process, and environmental permitting and consultation for natural and cultural resources. A key research program area is “Strengthening Transportation Planning and Environmental Decision-making.” HEPE is responsible for developing and implementing research projects focused on the following objectives: (1) promote more informed transportation decision-making to improve transportation planning, programming, operations, and coordination; (2) promote integrated planning that improves transportation safety and addresses environmental, social, and economic needs; (3) accelerate the project delivery process; (4) minimize environmental impacts of transportation investments; and (5) improve the way transportation contributes to economic development and communities' quality of life.
