This website will both improve the quality of the biological assessments and communication during consultation. Within this site will be a standard format and consistent guidance for completing a biological assessment. More importantly, this site will facilitate communication across the country. There will be the ability to share information within a project team and nationally, if necessary or desirable. For the first time, FHWA will have the ability to track progress on project consultations. This website will provide an effective way to distribute new information, answer questions, and share ideas.
