Final Environmental Impact Statement

An EIS has two parts, the Draft Environmental Impact Statement and the FEIS. These documents discuss the environmental impacts of a proposed federal Class I action. It is a full disclosure, decision-making document, used for actions which may cause significant environmental impacts. 
A decision to prepare an EIS is made either:

  • After early coordination and studies indicate potential for significant impacts, or
  • When review of comments received on a project's Environmental Assessment indicates potentially significant impacts

TH14 Safety Audit Report

A safety audit report examines a section of roadway and the crashes occurring on it.  After studying primary factors contributing to crashes, crashes are examined to determine if the quantity and severity are above normal for this type of roadway.  Safety improvement strategies and preventative measures are then suggested to reduce the crash types occurring on the roadway.
