Welcome to the Linking Planning and Environment Resource Agency INFORMation Center. This site is designed to provide timely, up to date, information, pertinent resources, and information regarding the implementation of a Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) regional initiative to improve communication and consultation between environmental resource agencies that are considered stakeholders in the transportation planning process. Furthermore, the aim of this initiative is to reduce, avoid, or mitigate the negative environmental impacts associated with the planning and implementation of transportation projects.


Some of the information provided on this website may not be intended for the public’s viewing until all necessary documentation and public involvement processes have been followed. This site is meant to provide a forum for information exchange, events, and other useful information to establish relationships with resource agencies to help shape a better, more environmentally sound transportation network in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. By working together all agencies with a stake in the environment, including transportation, can produce a more environmentally conscious plan for the region and the public utilizing the built and natural environments.
