Interim Policy on Page Limits for NEPA Documents and Focused Analyses
The material on this website has been withdrawn
The purpose of this interim policy is to improve the quality and reduce the length of documents prepared for compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Improving the quality of NEPA documentation has long been a priority for the U.S. Department of Transportation (Department) and its Operating Administrations (OAs). With this memorandum, the Department reaffirms this priority to develop shorter NEPA documents that meet applicable Federal requirements and an accountability process for those instances where a document exceeds page limit goals.
