FAST Act Section 1313 Regional Collaboration Session

Session Organizer and Moderator: Colleen Vaughn (U.S. Department of Transportation, Washington, D.C., United States); Co-Organizer: Julianne Schwarzer (U.S. DOT Volpe Center, Massachusetts, United States)

Section 1313 of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, requires the development of a series of improvements aimed at aligning the Federal environmental review process for non 23 U.S.C. 139 projects. This session led by the U.S. Department of Transportation will engage the audience in a discussion on utilizing the flexibility of existing regulations, policies, and guidance, and identifying additional actions to facilitate high quality, efficient, and targeted environmental reviews and permitting decisions.

Wednesday Field Trips

Field Trip 1: Mill Creek Culvert Replacement and Restoration

This half-day tour (4.5 hours round-trip) will take participants along the Mill Creek in Utah, which has undergone restoration in its upper nine miles and one lower mile of Porter Fork. Participants will examine a newly replaced culvert and an older culvert to be replaced. Discussions will address the difficulties of culvert replacement in this mountainous canyon near an urban area. Fisheries biologists and engineers will be on site to discuss the project from their perspectives, including the removal of fish species, stocking of native fish species, removal of man-made barriers and planting riparian vegetation. Lunch will be provided at the conclusion of this field trip when you return to the Convention Center. See Page 3 of this agenda for trip departure and return times.

Field Trip 2: Wetland Mitigation Bank and Deer Creek Restoration

This day tour (6 hours round-trip) will feature three sites displaying a variety of resource mitigation measures. First, participants will visit UDOT’s largest wetland mitigation bank, located near Utah Lake. Discussions will address the physical process of creating the wetland, monitoring and maintenance, and UDOT’s partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and other agencies to make this project a reality. The second stop is at the Deer Creek stream restoration site in Provo Canyon. Participants will learn how the stream restoration efforts have improved transportation in the canyon. The final stop will be at a new corrugated steel plate culvert wildlife crossing, also located in Provo Canyon. This field trip will include lunch, snacks and additional rest stops. See Page 3 of this agenda for trip departure and return times.

Field Trip 3: Wellsville Wildlife Crossings and Legacy Nature Preserve

This full-day tour (10 hours round-trip) will highlight wildlife crossings and critical habitats for migratory birds. The first stop will be at the Wellsville Wildlife Crossings, where participants will visit two existing crossings and one interchange retrofit under construction. These crossings include corrugated steel plate culverts, wildlife fencing and escape ramps. At the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge, participants will have lunch and take in the exhibits and nature trails. The tour concludes at the Legacy Nature Preserve, which provides crucial habitat for over 250 species of migratory birds. Located along the Great Salt Lake, the Preserve was developed to offset the projected impacts of the Legacy Parkway. This field trip will include lunch, snacks and additional rest stops. See Page 3 of this agenda for trip departure and return times.

Field Trip 4: Nugget Canyon and Trapper’s Point, Wyoming

This extended-day tour (13 hours round-trip) will travel through the spectacular landscape of high-elevation sagebrush steppe habitat along the Wyoming Range, Gros Ventre Range, and Wind River Range mountains in southwestern Wyoming. The first stop is Nugget Canyon, where U.S. Highway 30 bisects crucial winter range and migration routes for several animals, including pronghorn, mule, deer and elk. At this site, participants will observe wildlife crossing structures that have benefited several wild game species. Trapper’s Point, the second stop, is a well-known pronghorn migration bottleneck. Here participants will observe overpasses, underpasses and game fence designed to safely move wild game across the highway. This field trip will include lunch, snacks, and additional rest stops. See Page 3 of this agenda for trip departure and return times.
