Welcome to the Bureau of Environment!
The Bureau of Environment's principal role is to evaluate transportation construction projects and maintenance activities relative to impacts on natural, cultural and socioeconomic resources. The Bureau also acts as an environmental liaison between the Department and the appropriate federal, state, local and private environmental organizations as well as the general public.
