Description:

The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), and FHWA-Wyoming Division initiated development, in 2003, of a Programmatic Biological Assessment (PBA), transmitted to the Service on March 17, 2005. This joint Agency initiative was directed to the Service’s issuance of a Programmatic Biological Opinion (PBO), completed November 7, 2005. The PBA/PBO covers all Wyoming-listed Threatened and Endangered Species, 3 designated critical habitats, and all proposed, candidate and experimental non-essential species under the Endangered Species Act of 1973.

The PBA assessed the effects of WYDOT’s State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) of projects, including material sources, for five fiscal years, 2005-2009. This assessment documented project location, type of improvement, project category, species determination, project impacts on species and critical habitat, and effect determinations. Conservation Measures were identified to minimize project impacts for those species likely to be adversely affected.

The Service, in cooperation with WYDOT and FHWA, identified Terms and Conditions, which implement the Reasonable and Prudent Measures and outline annual monitoring and reporting requirements. WYDOT, the Service, and FHWA have developed a project-specific monitoring/reporting form, and they will meet annually to review the effectiveness of PBA conservation measures and PBO terms and conditions.

The Programmatic Biological Assessment and Programmatic Biological Opinion are available through email. For more information, see the April 2006 issue of Successes in Stewardship.

WYDOT currently uses the same procedure, although it operates under a new programmatic that runs from 2010 to 2014. WYDOT is presently working on the next agreement which will run from 2015 to 2019. If species and or habitat are added during the 5 year time frame the document is updated to reflect those changes.
