Feasibility Studies and Alternative Evaluation Reports: Documenting Decision-Making in ODOT's Project Development Process

This guidance is intended to help project managers and environmental specialists develop high-quality reports that effectively document Ohio Department of Transportation's (ODOT’s) decision-making process for a given project. This guidance focuses on the Feasibility Study (FS) and the Alternative Evaluation Report (AER) during the Project Development Process (PDP). In general, high-quality FS and AER reports: (1) Clearly explain the information used to narrow the range of alternatives and/or to identify the preferred alternative; (2) Focus on relevant data and avoid unnecessary length; (3) Include supporting technical information by reference; and (4) Use “reader friendly” principles as appropriate. The appendixes include sample outlines and tips for presenting data.
