Environmental Assessment (EA)
WisDOT environmental information
WisDOT works to balance the department's transportation responsibilities with the environment. Impacts to the environment that result from transportation projects are avoided when possible. When avoidance is not possible the department works to mitigate impacts to the environment when appropriate. Examples of possible mitigation could be restoration of an area once construction activities have been completed, or development of an off site mitigation bank system, banking systems are often developed to mitigate wetland impacts.
