National Environmental Policy Act
Council on Environmental Quality and U.S. DOT National Environmental Policy Act procedures ensure that environmental information is available to public and agency officials and citizens before decisions are made and before actions are taken. The National Environmental Policy Act process is intended to help public officials make informed decisions that include an understanding of environmental consequences, and pursue solutions that meet the project need while protecting, restoring, and enhancing the environment.
The National Environmental Policy Act applies to major federal actions (new and continuing activities that are entirely or partially financed, assisted, conducted, regulated, or approved by one or more federal agencies). It has been ODOT’s practice to apply the NEPA process to actions that have the potential to significantly impact the human environment, even if the project does not meet the definition of major federal action. 
For additional information regarding the NEPA statute as well as Council on Environmental Quality regulations and guidance, see the NEPA.gov website.
