What We Do
A Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study is an environmental and engineering process developed by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to determine social, economic, natural and physical environmental impacts associated with a proposed transportation improvement project.
The 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.
Public involvement is a key component of this process and various meetings are held with businesses, interested stakeholders, community groups, traveling public, homeowners and the general public to receive input on the project.
