Environmental problems should be foreseen in the planning stage with specific corrective measures provided in specific situations. In the absense of this preliminary planning, knowledgeable and unbiased judgement should be brought in promptly. Implementation must begin with studies of traffic patterns, locations and alignments and built into this process must be an acute awareness of environmental protection. Implementation procedures must be spelled out in construction plans and processes. The use is urged of proven techniques in soil and water controls. The environmental impact statement applicable to the construction process should give the resident engineer a set of tools whereby he can control specific soil and water pollution problems.
