The intent of Transportation Conformity is to fully coordinate transportation and air quality planning to ensure that the Regional Transportation Plan (the Plan) and the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) projects which are analyzed will not 1) cause or contribute to any new violation of the NAAQS, 2) increase the frequency or severity of. Draft Conformity Determination Air Quality •Projects must be analyzed to determine conformity with air quality plans and budgets •All projects must be included in the analysis •Projects not included in the analysis can not progress toward implementation. The air quality conformity analysis reflects an assessment of the regionally significant, -exempt transportationnon projects included in the TIP and LRTP. This document ensures that the findings meet all current criteria established by the U.S. Environmental.

The ozone analysis outlined in this section demonstrates that the implementation of the RTPs and – TIPs meets the “budget test,” and therefore satisfy the air quality ozone and carbon monoxide conformity criteria, and is consistent with the air quality goals in the Massachusetts SIP.

Air quality conformity is a Air quality conformity analysis book intended to ensure that FTA funding goes to transit activities that are consistent with the air quality goals set forth in the Clean Air Act.

Air quality conformity applies to two levels of transportation activity: To metropolitan transportation plans (MTPs) and transportation improvement programs (TIPs. Date of FHWA air quality conformity determination: _____ Go to Step Step STOP as all air quality conformity requirements have been met.

Signature. Signature Date. 5 Please note that not all projects that qualify for a categorical exclusion will be exempt from air quality conformity requirements. At the point in the NEPA process when the proposed action is determined, the air quality conformity analysis can be initiated.

Note that while all the NEPA alternatives can be evaluated in the applicability analysis, only the NEPA preferred alternative, or the selected alternative requires a Conformity.

The conformity analysis must demonstrate that the emissions resulting from the long-range regional transportation plan or TIP meet the requirements of (i.e., "conform to") the regulations governing air quality. Interagency consultation is required under the transportation conformity rule.

AIR QUALITY GENERAL CONFORMITY ANALYSIS. The first step in the screening analysis was calculating the annual vehicle miles traveled (VMT) by material haul trucks and the annual number of material haul truck trips possible based on the General Conformity.

de minimis. threshold values. This was computed using the following equations for each. General Conformity ensures that the actions taken by federal agencies, such as airport construction, do not interfere with a state’s plans to attain and maintain national standards for air quality.

EPA revised the General Conformity regulations in March As required under the Clean Air Act, MAG also performs the conformity analyses on these programs and plans. This ensures that transportation projects, programs, and plans do not cause or contribute to violations of the federal air quality standards in Maricopa and Pinal County nonattainment and maintenance areas.

The General Conformity Rule ensures that federal actions comply with the national ambient air quality standards. In order to meet this Clean Air Act requirement, a federal agency must demonstrate that every action that it undertakes, approves, permits or supports will conform to the appropriate state implementation plan (SIP).

The ADOT Air Quality Team is responsible for implementing and developing the statutory and regulatory requirements for conformity state Air quality conformity analysis book plans (conformity SIPs).

A conformity SIP includes a state's specific criteria and procedures for certain aspects of the transportation conformity process. The air quality conformity documentation must include adequate summary information such that conformity determinations can be made on the preferred alternative without having to refer to the environmental document.

An Air Quality Conformity Analysis Annotated Outline can be found on the SER Forms and Templates page. The conformity documentation. Conformity requirements apply in areas that either do not meet or previously have not met national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for ozone (O 3), carbon monoxide (CO), particulate matter (PM 10 and PM ), or nitrogen dioxide (NO 2).

These areas are known as “nonattainment areas” and “maintenance areas,” respectively. This report documents the air quality conformity analysis of the financially constrained element of the Visualize long-range transportation plan and FY Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The analysis is carried out under the regulations contained in the Environmental Protection Agency's final rule, published in the November.

An air quality conformity analysis is conducted to formally demonstrate that projected motor vehicle emissions associated with the regional transportation plan and TIP are less than or equal to the mobile budgets for each analysis year.

The conformity regulations require the use of the “latest planning. Transportation Conformity requirements for highway and transit projects are defined by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations, US EPA and US DOT (FHWA) guidance, and local consultation procedures set up by Metropolitan Planning Organizations and Air Pollution Control Districts to achieve and maintain Federal air quality standards.

Regional analysis addresses the. The air quality conformity analysis reflects an assessment of the regionally significant, non-exempt transportation projects included in both the TIP and the LRTP.

This document replaces the previously approved conformity demonstration of the TIP and LRTP, and ensures that the findings meet all current criteria established by the U.S.

Conformity Rule for designated nonattainment and maintenance areas under federal air quality standards for ozone (O 3), particulate matter (PM 10 and PM ), and carbon monoxide (CO).

On Novemamendments to the federal Clean Air Act were enacted. The Clean Air. Transportation conformity is the federally mandated analytical process through which Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) demonstrate that the transportation investments, strategies, and programs included in the Plan and TIPs are consistent with air quality goals established in State Implementation Plans (SIP) for achieving the NAAQS.

This chapter presents information about the air quality analyses that are required by both federal and state legislation.

The first section discusses analysis results of the air-quality conformity determination for projects in the LRTP, as required by federal regulations (40 CFR Part 93) and Massachusetts Conformity Regulations ( CMR ).
