Streamlining Environmental and Planning Processes (NCRST-SEPP)

NCRST - SEPP Advisory Panel

In support of and cooperation with the US DOT RITA sponsored project, an advisory panel concept was proposed and organized by FHWA that included participation and representation at both local and national levels. The constitution of the advisory panel was designed to provide policy and technical support and direction to the research team in the following capacities:

Objectives of the Policy Representative on Advisory Panel:

  • Support the implementation of statutory and regulatory requirements, and FHWA policy, related to transportation planning, linking transportation planning and the environmental review process under NEPA,  integrated planning, and environmental streamlining and stewardship
  • Facilitate the formation of working relationships and development of common understandings of different interests and needs among practitioners

The Technical members should represent the various geographic regions of the U.S. and be able to speak to the ability of DOTs to adopt new remote sensing methods. 

Objectives of the Technical Members of the Advisory Panel:

  • Evaluate needs for data and technology to deliver useful and timely information for decision-making
  • Support implementation and demonstrate the use of natural resource conservation planning applications in the transportation decision-making process
  • Support transportation decision-making for multiple “what if” scenarios and trade-off analyses
  • Promote data sharing, delivery, and analysis to relevant conservation, transportation, internal and external entities
