ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT HANDBOOK FOR HIGHWAY SYSTEMS
This report provides a general background for transportation planners on the considerations that should be given to the environmental impact analysis of proposed highways. It contains a description of the major environmental effects, both direct and indirect, resulting from the construction of highway systems. In addition to the general discussion of environmental effects, a section of the report describes the considerations that should be given to impact analysis and statement preparation. The primary emphasis of the report is to describe quantitative analysis techniques for assessing the air and noise impacts of highways.
