The Environmental Process Subcommittee meets on a monthly basis to discuss environmental regulation, guidance, and other current environmental topics facing practitioners. The subcommittee also operates an online practitioner forum that is updated regularly and hosts searchable peer questions that all members can read and respond to. Working groups for NEPA Assignment and Noise are also included under this subcommittee.
Together, the Committee on Environment & Sustainability (CES) and its four subcommittees monitor and actively participate in the development and consistent interpretation of environmental laws, regulations, and guidance. They provide state DOT expertise and play important roles in the Center for Environmental Excellence by AASHTO and the Environmental Technical Assistance Program (ETAP). In collaboration with the Research Task Force, the Committee and its Subcommittees identify and prioritize environmental/transportation research and support priority research selection and funding.
