    • Abstract:
      This report is intended to assist transportation and environmental professionals in the event of a bridge collapse or similar emergency. It analyzes the environmental review process in five cases of bridge reconstruction following collapse in Florida, Minnesota, Mississippi, and Oklahoma. The report describes how the key elements of the environmental review process in the cases reviewed were completed comparatively quickly. It finds that when emergencies occur they create a sense of urgency on the part of all stakeholders that leads to a consensus on the prioritization of the project. This report identifies several effective practices that allowed sponsor agencies to expedite the environmental review process. They include: Implementing processes and agreements that lead to regular dialogue among state and Federal transportation and resource agencies and establish strong working relationships before emergencies occur; Limiting the scope of projects to reduce the potential for new environmental impacts or disagreements; Using contracting mechanisms that offer opportunities to quickly respond to emergency situations; Maintaining up-to-date inventories of historic, cultural and natural resources to quickly identify the potential impacts of proposed designs; Establishing formal and informal emergency procedures that clearly identify roles and responsibilities to help expedite the environmental review process; and, Networking with peers from other states.
