In November 2009, FHWA Administrator Victor Mendez launched the Every Day Counts (EDC) initiative to significantly reduce highway project delivery time. EDC challenged FHWA to work with AASHTO, State DOTs and stakeholders to accelerate implementation of promising streamlining methods while promoting environmental sustainability and stewardship. One method to accomplishing environmental streamlining is the development and implementation of Programmatic Agreements (PA). This report describes the process used to compile, screen and evaluate PAs. Three groups of agreements are highlighted: NEPA, Cultural/Section 106 and Ecological. General observations on trends, patterns, gaps and opportunities are also provided.
