Transportation-related air pollution degrades air quality and presents a quantifiable societal cost. Traffic mix and average travel speed are important parameters for this purpose. It has been shown that on typical roads diesel trucks produce 10 times more NOx than cars, and cars emit 2–3 times more CO than diesel trucks [ 16 ].Cited by: 5.

The UPWP consists of seven major tasks that. Measures Should Capture Wider Impacts—Some stakeholders suggested that performance metrics should capture the effects of transportation investments on economic growth, efficient land use, environment, and community quality of life, and should support development of wider choices for solving congestion.

[National Research Council (U.S.). Transportation Research Board.; United States. Federal Highway Administration.;]. Although the transportation community has had more than 15 years of experience addressing air quality issues within the transportation planning process, GHG emissions in several ways are different from the criteria air pollutants currently regulated under the Clean Air Act: ï The environmental impact of most GHG emissions is the same.
The Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) of strengthened the link between transportation and the environment, toughening requirements for transportation projects to conform with air quality standards. In the following year, passage of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act.

Introduction. Policies to improve regional air quality (AQ) and reduce associated health risks represents a cornerstone of U.S. environmental quality efforts (Bachmann, ).Energy sectors, including the transportation sector, are responsible for the bulk of pollutant emissions driving current U.S.

Introduction. Housing is commonly built near freeways and other high-traffic roadways in American cities. California leads the nation, with 40% of its population living within one-third of a mile of a high-traffic road, compared with 19% nationally (Rowangould, ).People of color and people with lower incomes are more likely to live in neighborhoods with higher pollution levels Cited by: 2.
Dear Colleagues, I am organizing a Special Issue on “Transportation-Related Air Pollution and Human Health” for the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public journal is peer-reviewed and publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health.
This book is designed for two main audiences: policy-makers and experts in transport-related air pollution and public health. Accordingly, it offers both summary information for the former and full discussion, primarily for the latter.
A separate summary for policy-makers is also available. For both groups, this book identiﬁ es the.

Chemicals are transferred off-site when they are shipped to other locations, as the following diagram shows. Health Impact Assessment (HIA) has emerged as a beneficial tool for assessing direct and indirect public health impacts of infrastructure improvement such as public transportation. However, all of the published HIAs on public transportation have been conducted in urban areas and, for the most part, have focused around proposals of expanding or Cited by: 2.
More specifically, the quantitative assessments conducted for project-specific CO, or analyses for MSAT impacts and the regional conformity analysis conducted for ozone can all be considered indirect effects analyses because they look at air quality impacts attributable to the project that occur in the future.Recent developments concerning air quality and climate impacts are presented in the recent issue of the Air Quality and Climate Change Highlights newsletter from the Federal Highway Administration.
Topics covered include CMAQ computation guidance, alternative fuel corridor nominations, and renewable energy in rights-of-way.WATER QUALITY MANUAL 1. POLICY.
