Our Projects and the Environment


The New Jersey Department of Transportation's (NJDOT) environmental groups are dedicated stewards of the environment; improving the quality of life of New Jersey's citizens. NJDOT's mission statement says:

"Improving Lives by Improving Transportation."

NJDOT is responsible for planning, design, construction,
maintenance and operation of our transportation network. The environmental groups within NJDOT ensure that roadway projects comply with all environmental policies, State and federal environmental regulations, and commitments stemming from coordination with regulatory agencies and consultation with cultural resource agencies. The groups perform or oversee the preparation of National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documents; permit applications; Soil Erosion and Sediment Control certifications; cultural resource studies; construction monitoring; wetland mitigation plans/monitoring; and hazardous waste requirements. Hydrology and hydraulic engineering expertise are provided for wetland and storm water mitigation; landscape architectural expertise is provided for reforestation requirements, cultural resources, and other functional and aesthetic design.

As part of NJDOT's mitigation efforts, technical and non-technical information has been created on cultural resources and environmental resources. Project-specific information is also available for the projects listed below as well as for projects that are in construction.
