Environmental Stewardship and Streamlining

FHWA/FTA Program Guidance on Linking the Transportation Planning and NEPA Processes

FHWA/FTA Program Guidance on Linking the Transportation Planning and NEPA Processes

FHWA and FTA currently are developing program guidance to strengthen the ability to rely on transportation planning work in the NEPA process. This guidance is intended for use by State DOTs, MPOs, and transit agencies to clarify the circumstances under which transportation planning level decisions (pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 134-135 and 49 U.S.C. 5303-5306) can be adopted or incorporated into the process required by NEPA. A workshop was held on October 22, 2004 in Washington, DC for FHWA/FTA to meet with representatives of our public sector state/local partners (i.e., AASHTO, AMPO, APTA, and NARC) to explain the draft program guidance, discuss issues, answer questions, and obtain stakeholder input. Completion of this program guidance currently is slated for the first quarter of FY 2005. For more information, please contact Larry Anderson, FHWA Office of Planning, at (202) 366-2374 or E-mail: Larry.Anderson@fhwa.dot.gov or Carol Adkins, FHWA Office of Project Development and Environmental Review, at (202) 366-2054 or E-mail: Carol.Adkins@fhwa.dot.gov.

GIS for Environmental Streamlining

The first sessions of the new workshop on GIS use for Environmental Streamlining and Stewardship in Transportation (GIS4EST) have been scheduled. The schedule is as follows: Oklahoma, February 16-17, Connecticut, March 22-23, and Ohio, April 26-27, 2005. The workshop provides an opportunity for State DOTs to partner with Environmental Resource Agencies to improve their processes through the use of GIS tools. For more information, please contact Ben Williams, FHWA Resource Center, at 404-562-3671 or E-mail: Ben.Williams@fhwa.dot.gov or Aung Gye, FHWA, at 202-366-2167 or E-mail: Aung.Gye@fhwa.dot.gov.

New FHWA/FTA Planning for Operations Website

Image of various transportation related scenes representing the New FHWA/FTA Planning for Operations Website

The Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA’s) Office of Planning, Environment & Realty and Office of Operations, in partnership with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), have created a website around the theme of linking transportation planning and operations. This website is intended for planners and operations staff and managers at State Departments of Transportation, Metropolitan Planning Organizations, transit operators, and local agencies that play a role in planning for and operating transportation systems.

The website contains background and other information on this theme, including discussion on opportunities for creating linkages, training opportunities, the benefits of greater linkages, and access to relevant publications and other materials and tools. The website also includes materials that emphasize maintaining sustained collaborative relationships between planners and operators, taking a regional approach to Transportation Systems Management and Operations (TSMO), and exploring opportunities for further linking transportation planning and operations.

Questions on the website may be forwarded to Harlan Miller, FHWA, at (202) 366-0847; Wayne Berman, FHWA, at (202) 366-4069; or Vincent Valdes, FTA Office of Systems Planning, at (202) 366-3052.

New Reference Manual on Opportunities for Linking Transportation Planning and Operations

FHWA’s Office of Planning and Office of Transportation Management have been developing a new reference manual to build stronger linkages between transportation planning and systems management and operations on a regional basis. Entitled “Getting More by Working Together--Opportunities for Linking Planning and Operations,” this reference manual contains information derived from an extensive literature review and discussions with nearly 30 transportation professionals representing the "planning" and "operations" disciplines at all levels of government. Based on this information, the document presents several opportunities for strengthening this linkage (e.g., systems operations performance measures, data sharing, ITS regional architectures, and congestion management systems). Publication and posting of this reference document is expected in February 2005. For more information, please contact Harlan Miller, FHWA Office of Planning, at (202) 366-0847; Robin Mayhew, FHWA Office of Planning, at (360) 753-9416; or Wayne Berman, FHWA Office of Transportation Management, at (202) 366-4069.

Scenario Planning

Transportation Conformity

EPA Releases Draft MOVES2004 Model and Documentation for Public Review

On January 6, 2005 EPA released the draft version of the Motor Vehicle Emission Simulator (MOVES), MOVES2004, and supporting documents covering model use, design, and technical inputs. The release initiates a six-month comment period to allow model stakeholders to review and provide comment on any aspect of the model or documentation. Note that the draft MOVES2004 is being released for review purposes and does not affect the official status of MOBILE6. The draft MOVES2004 model has been posted on EPA’s website. Comments are due to EPA on July 15, 2005 and should be sent to mobile@epa.gov or by regular mail to MOVES Team, c/o John Koupal, U.S.EPA, Office of Transportation and Air Quality, Assessment and Standards Division, 2000 Traverwood Drive, Ann Arbor, MI 48105. EPA plans to hold a MOVES2004 workshop in the spring and will post specifics on its website when the date and location are finalized.


EPA Reclassifies Nine Ozone Nonattainment Areas


On September 17, 2004 U.S. EPA announced the reclassification of nine areas to "marginal" instead of "moderate" nonattainment of 8-hour ozone standard. The reclassified areas are: Cass County, MI; Muskegon County, MI; the eight-county Detroit, MI metro area; Greensboro County, NC; Kent and Queen Anne counties, MD; Lancaster County, PA; LaPorte County, IN; the counties surrounding Memphis, TN; and the counties surrounding Richmond, VA. Although the new classification lifts some CAA mandates, including auto tailpipe emissions testing, it mandates faster compliance, requiring standards to be met by 2007 instead of 2010. For transportation conformity, these areas (except Greensboro, NC, which is an Early Action Compact area) will be allowed to choose between either the no-greater-than-2002 test or the greater-than-no-build test to demonstrate 8-hour conformity if interim emissions tests are applicable in these areas. However, it should be noted that the effective date of the nonattainment designation has not changed from June 15, 2004. The one-year grace period for conformity will expire on June 15, 2005 for these areas (except Greensboro). For more information, visit the their website.
