SAVE THE DATE/WEBINAR: Planning and Environment Linkages (PEL) Handbook and PEL Flowcharts Webinar

FHWA is hosting an upcoming webinar showcasing the new Planning and Environment Linkages (PEL) Handbook and PEL Flowcharts. This webinar is open to everyone.

BACKGROUND: On January 17, 2024, FHWA published the new PEL Handbookand three PEL Flowcharts "Authorities, Purpose and Needs, and Alternatives"on the FHWA Environmental Review Toolkit website. PEL represents a collaborative and integrated approach to transportation decision-making that considers benefits and impacts of proposed transportation system improvements to the environment, community, and economy during the transportation planning process to inform the environmental review process. The PEL handbook and flowcharts provide practitioners with guidance that support implementing PEL approaches.

This webinar will showcase the contents of the PEL Handbook, walk through the PEL Flowcharts and how to implement the PEL authorities, describe how planning information and decisions made during planning can have utility in the environmental review process, and provide an opportunity for questions and discussions on these newly available materials.
