About Us

The Geo-Environmental Section is responsible for coordinating environmental regulatory compliance for all transportation improvement programs in the state which use federal funds. The section is also responsible for statewide practices, standards, training, expertise, and asset management for geo, hydro, and environmental disciplines within ODOT. 
We protect the public and are stewards of the public interest for a variety of natural and cultural resources. We bridge the natural resources and civil engineering disciplines. We build dynamic partnerships for making vital decisions to serve the public and protect our resources.
