Updates with the TDOT NEPA Process

Change is the only constant, and TDOT like most organizations is always changing….

First off I would like to say goodbye and thank you to Scarlett Sharpe. Scarlett just moved out of state, but has been the anchor person and a HUGE help in getting the TDOT Environmental document process smoothed out over the past few years. I know that I am not alone in the Consultant community that has been deeply grateful for Scarlett’s help. We wish her the best as she moves on.

With that I would like to welcome Drew Gaskins to the TDOT Local Programs world. Drew, like me, is a consultant and has been brought in to replace Scarlett. I have had the chance to meet and work with Drew over the past several weeks and he is a real professional. Drew has been very helpful in the numerous NEPA documents that I am currently working on. Here is Drew’s information:

While we are on the subject of change at TDOT this last week Holly Barnett of the TDOT Historical section has informed me that the format for the 106 memo that is used to request State Historical Preservation Office (SHPO) approvals has been changed. You can find the new form here Cultural Resources Local Programs Template, Updated SHPO Template, May 2014, and here is Holly’s information if you have any questions about it:

I work for Askew, Hargraves, Harcourt and Associates, Inc. here in Nashville, Tennessee. The short version of what I do is that we help local governments spend the Federal funds they get from TDOT on road, and bridge projects.
