State management of transit project eco reviews proposed

Posted on September 3, 2013

U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx issued a proposal that would give states an opportunity to manage the federally required environmental review process for highway, rail and transit projects.

The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) would expand the Surface Transportation Project Delivery (STPD) program for interested states, implementing a key provision of MAP-21 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century).

Since its creation in the “Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient, Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users” (SAFETEA-LU) in 2006, the STPD program has been available only as a pilot in five states. The NPRM appears in the Federal Register.

The public is invited to submit its comments through www.regulations.gov during the 60-day public comment period, which will expire on Oct. 29, 2013.
