What GAO Found

This is an E-supplement to GAO-12-593. This e-supplement presents the results of GAO's Web-based survey of state departments of transportation (DOTs) about their perspectives on the benefits and challenges of provisions meant to expedite highway projects established in the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) and practices the state DOTs have implemented on their own to expedite highway projects. SAFETEA-LU, enacted in August 2005, established a number of provisions to help expedite highway projects, including streamlining some portions of the environmental review process, allowing states to assume greater environmental review responsibilities under certain conditions, and establishing pilot programs that permitted delegation of some authority from the federal government to states.
