This discusses the organization problems encountered in implementing Federal environmental legislation. The major problem identified is time delay, the present bad time to move a project from authorization to letting is 6'1/2 years; in 1961 it was 3 years 8 months and 1954 the same project would have required 2 years and 10 months. The most frustrating aspect is Section 4 (F) of the DOT Act of 1969. The author goes on to discuss filing environmental impact statements and methods of dealing with air and noise pollution. One remedial step discussed is the multidsciplinary planning team which aids in freeway design.
