ODOT and FHWA NEPA Assignment MOU

The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) concerning the State of Ohio’s participation in the Project Delivery Program pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 was originally executed and went into effect December 28, 2015. The MOU was amended June 6, 2018. This MOU means that FHWA has assigned ODOT some FHWA NEPA responsibilities for environmental review, consultation or other actions required under federal environmental law that pertain to the review or approval of specific highway, railroad, public transportation and multimodal projects. The responsibilities were assigned under the Surface Transportation Project Delivery Program (Assignment Program) codified at 23 USC 327. The assigned responsibilities are subject to the same procedural and substantive requirements as previously applied to FHWA. The NEPA Assignment Program does not preempt or interfere with any power, jurisdiction, responsibility or authority of an agency, excluding FWHA, under applicable laws and regulations.
