Streamlining Environmental and Planning Processes (NCRST - SEPP)

NCRST - SEPP Project Background

To provide a basis for making credible comparisons between the results derived by traditional approaches in the EIS process and the results that may be derived by the application of CRS&SI technologies, it was necessary to select a transportation project for which an EIS had been completed. To provide a testbed project of national significance, a major interstate transportation project was selected for a nationally important corridor, the I-69 corridor that will provide a vital tranportation linkage between Canada and Mexico. The segment of independent utility (SIU) selected for the project was SIU 9 which include I-69 and new I-269 corridor around Memphis, TN, and into Northwest Mississippi.

NCRST-SEPP Project 1: A completed EIS for a planned segment of I-69 that traverses Memphis, TN, and Northwest Mississippi serves as the research test bed to quantify benefits delivered by the CRS&SI technology deployment project. In addition, the project also addresses Hurricane Katrina lessons learned to derive nationally significant motivations toward enhanced geospatial preparedness for application to transportation planning practices.

The following documents and resources are available to deliver background information and understanding about the I-69 SIU 9 project and the completed EIS for the testbed research activities:
