The purpose of the Air Quality COP is to assemble a group of State Department of Transportation (DOT) air quality practitioners to have a focused discussion on the state of the practice, emerging issues, and research data needs on particular air quality issues.
Practitioners share experiences and learn from each other, helping to further the state of the knowledge of the community. In addition, the effort helps to extend the COP members’ networks and professional contacts. The Air Quality COP consists of representatives from ten State DOTs, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Federal Transportation Administration (FTA) and AASHTO.
