Section 1310 Guidance on the Application of Categorical Exclusions for Multimodal Projects
This revised guidance addresses the application of categorical exclusions (CE) for multimodal projects under 49 U.S.C. 304. Under certain conditions, 49 U.S.C. 304 allows one DOT Operating Administration or Secretarial office (collectively referred to as “OA”) to apply the CE of another OA for multimodal projects. DOT is updating this guidance because section 1310 of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) amended 49 U.S.C. 304.
