One of the top challenges facing state Departments of Transportation (DOTs) is environmental performance. They are challenged to comply with a lengthy list of environmental laws, meet public expectations for environmental protection and enhancement, and also expedite environmental reviews in order to deliver high quality transportation improvements that meet transportation needs.

To help state DOTs meet this challenge, this NCHRP study focused on identifying and describing effective organization structures and management practices to achieve a high level of environmental stewardship and environmental streamlining.
