ENVIRONMENTAL REQUIREMENTS OF HIGHWAY AND HISTORIC PRESERVATION LEGISLATION

THE ENVIRONMENTAL REQUIREMENTS OF HIGHWAY AND HISTORIC PRESERVATION LEGISLATION OF THE PAST FOUR YEARS ARE REVIEWED. THE LEGISLATIVE BACKGROUND AND INTENT OF SECTION 138 OF TITLE 23 OF THE UNITED STATES CODE, SECTION 4 (F) OF THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION ACT, THE NATIONAL HISTORIC PRESERVATION ACT OF 1966; AND THE "URBAN IMPACT" AMENDMENT TO SECTION 128 OF TITLE 23 ARE DISCUSSED. THESE PROVISIONS ESTABLISH REQUIREMENTS FOR A BROAD CONSIDERATION OF NON-TRANSPORTATION SOCIAL VALUES IN THE HIGHWAY PLANNING PROCESS. IN ORDER TO FURNISH GUIDELINES TO STATE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENTS IN THE ENFORCEMENT OF THESE LEGISLATIVE PROVISIONS, THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION HAS ISSUED IMPORTANT ADMINISTRATIVE DIRECTIVES, INCLUDING POLICY AND PROCEDURE MEMORANDUM 20-8 AND DIRECTIVES ON RELOCATION BENEFITS FOR PERSONS AND BUSINESSES DISPLACED BY HIGHWAY PROJECTS. THESE DIRECTIVES ARE EXPLAINED, AS WELL AS THE NEW ORGANIZATIONAL ARRANGEMENTS TO MEET ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITIES WITHIN THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION. /AUTHOR/
