Research Idea Scope
Nationwide tracking of Section 106/NEPA commitments. Finding lost commitments. Inventory and access, tracking commitments, manage workflow. Issues with MOAs, expiration dates. Immediate time frame, making sure inspectors can find the information, documenting and implementing environmental commitments. Tracking ECR commitments and closing out projects. Change orders, project changes post-design phase.
Urgency and Payoff
DOTs are having challenges tracking environmental commitments nationwide. This is an immediate need that could help ensure commitments are tracked and completed.
