The NEPA Special Projects Section works with TDOT staff and consultants to prepare and review documentation related to all Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) and Environmental Assessments (EA), as well as some Documented Categorical Exclusions (D-List CE), as may be required pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for select transportation projects in Tennessee.

The NEPA Special Projects Section also manages the Tennessee Environmental Streamlining Agreement (TESA) on behalf of the Environmental Division. TESA is an inter-agency agreement designed to foster coordination and concurrence throughout the project development process for select projects.

Most Categorical Exclusion (CE) documents are developed by the Environmental Division's NEPA Section, within the Environmental Analysis Office.
