SCREENING OF TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS FOR POTENTIAL ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS
In 1971, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications of Ontario initiated the development of an inhouse environmental staff. The basic purpose of the environmental assessment of a highway improvement project is to identify, consider and take action to avoid or minimize negative impacts to the environment which might take place due to the construction, operation and/or maintenance of that highway. The author discusses the screening process that has been set up to review on a regular basis all projects for potential environmental effects.
