What is Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL)?

Study Status: Complete

PEL represents an approach to transportation decision-making that considers environmental, community, and economic goals early in the planning stage and carries them through project development, design, and construction.  This can lead to a seamless decision-making process that minimizes duplication of effort, promotes efficient and cost-effective solutions and environmental stewardship, and reduces delays in project implementation.
