Developing a Process for Early Consideration of Environmental Issues
Texas Transportation Institute, Texas A&M University System, 2002 - Environmental justice
This project resulted in a guidebook to provide Texas Department of Transportation and its partner entities (metropolitan planning organizations) with tools and techniques to consider environmental issues, including environmental justice, early on and throughout the planning and project selection process. The guidebook recommends a preliminary environmental process, at the earliest planning stages, to identify impacts and possibly avoid problems that would cause delays and complications in detailed project planning, design, and implementation. The process has been named the "preliminary review environmental process."
