Environmental issues play a major role in the planning, design, construction, and rehabilitation
of highways. Indeed, their prominence has grown as the public has become
increasingly informed on environmental issues and associated requirements. This chapter
provides an overview to lend guidance in understanding environmental issues, and
information to aid in the process of effectively addressing the various requirements in
this area. It begins with an overall review of the numerous federal laws and regulations
that must be considered. A thorough discussion is provided of the requirements
of the National Environmental Policy Act and the preparation of environmental impact
statements. Information is presented on the important topics of storm water pollution
prevention and lead-based paint removal and containment. The chapter concludes with
a discussion of resource recovery and the use of waste material, including the recycling
of hazardous wastes.
