Mandated environmental considerations are an important part of all highway agencies' roadway construction and maintenance activities. This course focuses on balancing the need to fulfill environmental protections and the need to complete project activities in a safe, timely, and financially responsible manner.
The course emphasizes common environmental agency regulations, adherence to plans, early and frequent communication regarding construction and maintenance commitments, and the potential for encountering unexpected issues. Course activities help participants understand how to build environmental considerations into their standard practice. Learning about construction and maintenance considerations, processes, and practices can help transportation personnel ensure compliance with numerous and increasingly complex Federal, State, and local environmental regulations.
This course content is delivered via approximately 6 hours of independent study workbook materials and a 1.5-day classroom-based, instructor-led session.
This course is intended primarily for Federal, State, and local highway construction inspectors, maintenance supervisors, and other inspection and field personnel who must ensure that identified environmental impacts are mitigated during construction and maintenance operations. This may include FHWA employees, as well as State employees and local agencies and consultants that oversee such activities.
