Public Involvement

TMS has been supporting Project Development and Environmental (PD&E) studies for over 20 years. Developed by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), a solid PD&E study determines social, economic, natural and physical environmental impacts associated with a proposed transportation improvement project. The PD&E process follows procedures set forth in the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and federal and state laws and regulations. It requires the combined efforts of professional engineers, planners, and scientists who collect and analyze project-related information to develop the best solution for transportation needs. An important component of the process is public and agency involvement. This is where TMS comes in. From data collection to supporting report preparation to public and agency involvement, TMS’s specialized team partners with engineering firms statewide.

“The PD&E process will provide many opportunities for the public to view information about the project and to comment on the proposed improvements. Public Involvement activities will continue throughout the duration of the project.”
