2008 Program Environmental Impact Report
The 2008 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) is a long-range regional transportation plan that provides a blueprint to help achieve a coordinated and balanced regional transportation system. The 2008 RTP Program Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) fulfills the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act and provides a useful, regional-scale environmental planning tool that will support subsequent, site-specific analysis and identifies appropriate measures to minimize adverse environmental effects. Transportation projects in the SCAG region must be consistent with the RTP in order to receive federal funding. Individual projects are preliminarily identified in the 2008 RTP PEIR; however, project-level analysis will be prepared by implementing agencies on a project-by-project basis.
