2013 Project Delivery Plan

The safe, efficient, and convenient movement of people and goods is critical to maintaining and strengthening America’s competitive advantages in the global economy. As America invests in infrastructure built to last, the Federal permitting and review process plays a key role in ensuring not only that transportation projects meet important national environmental and economic objectives, but also that project decisions are made in a timely and collaborative manner. Maintaining and upgrading transportation infrastructure requires significant investment, and these costs only increase when project schedules are delayed through poor coordination or litigation. This project delivery initiative, while not a substitute for the increased investment so desperately needed, will help ensure that scarce Federal, state, local, and private infrastructure investments are not wasted as a result of avoidable project delivery delays.
