Section 1313 of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act focuses on Aligning Federal Environmental Reviews, and requires the development of a series of improvements aimed at aligning the Federal environmental review process for non 23 U.S.C. 139 projects.

In support of Section 1313, the US Department of Transportation is holding interagency collaboration sessions to ensure agency staff are fully engaged, utilizing the flexibility of existing regulations, policies, and guidance, and identifying additional actions to facilitate high quality, efficient, and targeted environmental reviews and permitting decisions. 

During this session, the US Department of Transportation will facilitate a discussion amongst participants to learn about best practices and understand key challenges.
