Checklist of Environmental Requirements and Resources 1313 and Appendix

The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) requires the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT or Department) and other Federal agencies of jurisdiction likely to have substantive review or approval responsibilities on transportation projects to develop a checklist to help project sponsors identify potential natural, cultural, and historic resources in the area of a proposed project. The checklist, however, is intended to generally help project sponsors with the following: (1) identify agencies of jurisdiction and cooperating agencies; (2) develop the information needed for the purpose and need and alternatives for analysis; and (3) improve interagency collaboration to help expedite the permitting process for the lead agency and agencies of jurisdiction.
