Traditional Environmental Analysis in the Project Planning/Project Development Stage

The left side of the graphic contains the text "Traditional Environmental Analysis in the Project Planning/Project Development Stage." There are five arrows on the right side of the box, each pointing to one of the list items below:

  • Transportation planning often does not incorporate environmental factors
  • Environmental agencies have little understanding of or influence on transportation plans and programs
  • Planning decisions are often revisited under NEPA
  • Environmental reviews often are conducted without knowledge of prior planning studies and activities
  • Public and elected officials become impatient, confused, frustrated over apparent revisiting of previous decisions
