Project Level Conformity

Project level conformity determinations require that the FHWA/FTA project must come from a conforming transportation plan/TIP or associated regional emissions analysis. In addition, in carbon monoxide and particulate matter nonattainment and maintenance areas, an analysis of localized emissions may be required for federally funded or approved projects. This analysis is called a "hot-spot" analysis.
