  Project Data

Research Agency: ICF Consulting, Inc.
Principal Investigator: Marie Venner
Effective Date: 6/6/2008
Completion Date: 6/6/2009
Comments: The project has been completed and the final report submitted to AASHTO

Planning, construction, and operations of transportation projects frequently ignore environmental goals, including community desires and needs, until there is an adverse reaction. If there were a scoping framework to redefining the purpose transportation project at the outset and identifying comprehensively all relevant needs/purposes/benefits, then the project could be supported and empowered by multiple constituencies. The Objective of this research was to develop incentive based examples for DOT’s to use as they develop their programs.
