Accelerated Environmental Review For Infrastructure Projects

U.S. Transportation Secretary Norman Y. Mineta today announced an initial list of seven transportation construction projects around the country that will receive accelerated environmental review under President Bush's executive order.

Today's announcement represents the first in an ongoing series of important transportation infrastructure projects chosen for accelerated environmental review. These projects illustrate for potential state and local applicants the kind of projects that would benefit from this initiative. The Department will build on this initial list of projects by reviewing the numerous nominations it is receiving from governors and local officials, and announcing on a regular basis those projects selected by the President's task force on environmental stewardship.
