Question 10: If a NEPA review for which the Notice of Intent was published prior to the date of enactment of SAFETEA-LU (August 11, 2005) is being re-evaluated due to a 3-year lapse in activity, or re-scoped for any reason, or if a supplemental EIS (SEIS) is needed, must the SAFETEA-LU environmental review process be followed?
Question 13: For FTA New Starts and Small Starts projects, how does the NEPA process, as enhanced by Section 6002, interface with the planning Alternatives Analysis that is part of the project development process for New and Small Starts projects?
Question 26: What happens if an agency does not initially become a participating agency, but subsequent events indicate that the agency wants or needs to become involved in the environmental review process?
Question 29: If an agency decides not to submit comments or otherwise participate in USDOT's environmental review process, can that agency still submit comments to non-USDOT agencies when they review the project and make decisions under other laws?
Question 50: How does a coordination plan for the environmental review process relate to the "project management plan" required for FHWA's Major Projects and for transit New Starts and Small Starts projects?
Question 60: For transportation projects, SAFETEA-LU directs that, to the maximum extent practicable and consistent with statutory obligations, each Federal agency (a) carry out its obligations under other Federal laws concurrently and in conjunction with the USDOT environmental review process required by NEPA; and (b) formulate and implement mechanisms to ensure the completion of the environmental review process in a timely, coordinated, and environmentally responsible manner. How is USDOT approaching this directive to other Federal agencies?
Question 65: SAFETEA-LU requires USDOT to (1) establish a program for measuring progress in improving the planning and environmental review process for transportation projects, and (2) report on the findings and results of the elements of the process that are measured. How will this requirement be implemented?
