This course will expand the knowledge and skills of front-line transportation practitioners in developing and preparing Purpose and Need (P&N) statements in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Welljustified P&N statements are critical to the development of legally defensible transportation projects. This course has been updated to include changes to P&N preparation as a result of ODOT’s incorporation of Performance Based Project Development into the transportation program. This course includes a case study component to allow participants to work through the development of a P&N Statement.
