Enhanced Technical Assistance on Stalled Environmental Impact Studies (EIS)

MDOT used this tool during preparation of the Detroit River International Crossing/New International Trade Crossing (DRIC/NITC) EIS for expedited review times, and more stringent review of the traffic models and analyses. FHWA headquarters also provided review of the community and Environmental Justice impact analysis. This level of review was provided in anticipation of the legal challenges from the privately-owned bridge company.
