The US Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration provides many resources on integrating transportation and environment. Through Planning and Environment Linkages (PEL), transportation and environmental professionals and decision makers can consider impacts of transportation early in the planning process. This may make it possible to carry over information from transportation planning into environmental review.
Find publications, tools, recorded webinars and other training materials, and links to the laws and regulations that authorize agencies to use PEL here. Need more help? Agencies that would like to learn more about the PEL program or discuss opportunities to accelerate project delivery can request information, training, or support here.
