On November 23, the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) issued a proposal to update its procedures for implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). AGC is currently reviewing the proposal to prepare a response ahead of the December 23, 2020 deadline for public comment. The revision to U.S. DOT’s implementing rules is necessary to align with the new, over-arching NEPA regulation that took effect in September of this year. Furthermore, the proposal incorporates environmental review requirements from recent bipartisan infrastructure legislation: SAFETEA-LU, MAP-21, and the FAST Act.
