Projects to construct, improve, and repair roads and bridges are fundamental to meeting the nationäó»s mobility needs. However, completing highway projects -- which generally involves four phases consisting of (1) planning, (2) preliminary design and environmental review, (3) final design and right-of-way acquisition, and (4) construction -- can sometimes take a long time. In 2005, SAFETEA-LU established provisions to help expedite highway projects, including streamlining some portions of the environmental review process, allowing states to assume greater environmental review responsibilities under certain conditions, and establishing efforts that permitted delegation of some authority from the federal government to states. This report (1) describes the process and factors that could affect highway project time frames; (2) examines state Dept. of Transportationsäó» (DOTsäó») views on the benefits and challenges of the provisions to expedite highway projects established in SAFETEA-LU; and (3) describes additional initiatives that state DOTs and the Fed. Highway Admin. (FHWA) have implemented to expedite the completion of highway projects. Tables and figures.
