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.

The attached Operational Independence and Non-Concurrent Construction Guidance further explains what FHWA considers to be operationally independent and non-concurrent construction. This Operational Independence and Non-Concurrent Construction Guidance will be posted at: www.fhwa.dot.gov/ipd/.
