California Pilot Test of the Ecological Approaches to Environmental Protection Developed in Capacity Research Projects C06A and C06B

The Transportation Research Board’s second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) has released a report that describes the result of a pilot test of the Integrated Ecological Framework (IEF) on the corridor planning study for Highway 37 in the San Francisco Bay Area. The IEF was developed in SHRP 2 projects C06A (Integration of Conservation, Highway Planning, and Environmental Permitting Using an Outcome-Based Ecosystem Approach) and C06B (Integration of Conservation, Highway Planning, and Environmental Permitting through Development of an Outcome-Based Ecosystem-Scale Approach and Corresponding Credit System). The integrated ecological framework in C06 suggests nine planning steps to improve the process of delivering transportation projects with early inclusion in planning of stakeholder interests and environmental information. This report summarizes how the San Francisco Bay Area team followed each of the first seven steps and the team’s general findings from each.
