FHWA's Office of Human Environment (HEPH) sponsored a webinar on Wednesday February 20, 2013 to address MAP-21's impact on Federal requirements for the Enhanced National Highway System (NHS).
The webinar began with an overview of the changes to the system as well as the process for making modifications to it. Then, representatives from four FHWA offices shared a comprehensive overview of the new Federal requirements under MAP-21.
Ralph Gillman from the Office of Highway Policy Information discussed changes to Highway Performance Monitoring System under the legislation. HEPH's Stefan Natzke shared information about new NHS data reporting and collection requirements. Mike Neathery, also with HEPH, presented changes to the NHS under MAP-21. Dawn Horan, representing the Office of Real Estate Services, addressed regulations related to outdoor advertising and junkyard control.
