Operational Independence and Non-Concurrent Construction

Operational Independence and Non-concurrent Construction Guidance

The FHWA Major Project Guidance  issued on January 19, 2007 (Questions 8 and 9), provides that the scope of work described by a NEPA decision document may be divided into multiple projects that correspond to operationally independent and non-concurrent construction phases of work for the purpose of applying Major Project requirements. This Guidance further explains what FHWA considers to be operationally independent and non-concurrent construction. A memo issued December 30, 2009  announces this guidance document.
