An analysis of how transportation agencies currently are using Environmental Management Systems, along with a related benchmarking tool for DOTs, have been developed under the National Cooperative Highway Research Program. The project (NCHRP 25-25 (111)) is intended to improve understanding and awareness of EMS and facilitate assessment of EMSs at state DOTs. A spreadsheet-based EMS “information array” provides links to literature sources, DOT examples, and survey data, as well as a prototype benchmarking tool for gap identification at the agency level. A “scrolling” version of the EMS tool also can be used to benchmark individual state programs against survey data from other DOTs. For more information, link to the study. (1-4-19)
