Human Environment

Human Environment encompasses the issues of community characteristics, values, and vision. Integration of human environment data and information helps ensure local support for plans and projects.

The primary benefit of integrating human environment analyses with transportation decision making is the sharing of information between these processes. This sharing of information occurs at multiple key decisions in long range planning, corridor planning, and environmental review.

The Decision Guide provides detailed information on the individual key decisions at which these processes are integrated. Explore the graphic below to learn about this relationship:

  • Hover over the highlighted key decisions to understand the specific relationship of human environment to the decision.
  • Click on any highlighted key decision for more information concerning human environment and this decision. You will find useful information in the "Data" and "Integrated Planning" tabs.

Key Decisions that are grayed-out have no specific relevance to the individual application or topic area but are still accessible from this graphic.
