The FHWA Office of Planning, Environment, and Realty will share research and program activities that are responding to the demand for accelerating project delivery while protecting the environment. In addition the environmental decision making process is adapting to address disruptive technology, innovative financing, and increased expectations for multimodal solutions, community revitalization and economic development in both rural and urban contexts. A dialogue with environmental science academics and students will reveal a range of research sharing, research needs, education and training opportunities to build individual and institutional capacity in the country to respond to current challenges.
