The FHWA and the FTA have initiated a series of joint Enhanced Planning Reviews (EPRs) to assess the impact of ISTEA on the transportation planning processes in metropolitan areas. The EPRs have examined the impact of planning on transportation investment processes and provided technical evaluation of planning and programming processes, covering such topics as: financial constraint and planning; major investment studies; congestion management systems; links between transportation and air quality conformity; public involvement; ISTEA planning factors; and travel demand forecasting. Copies of EPR final reports , published in 1996, are available for the following cities: Honolulu, Miami, New York, and Salt Lake City. Also available are Independent Planning Review reports for: Chicago, Denver, Houston, Kansas City, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Pittsburgh, Portland, Sacramento, and Southern California. All planning review reports can be downloaded from the FTA Home Page on the World Wide Web of the Internet at: http://www.fta.dot.gov.
