The Carbon Reduction Strategy development process kicked off in February 2023. Research and analysis were conducted from March through June 2023, and a draft CRS was developed from July to September 2023. Following public review and review by the Federal Highway Administration to ensure the CRS fulfills all federal requirements, the final CRS will be issued no later than November 15, 2023, to meet the federal completion deadline. Coordination with MDT, Metropolitan Planning Organizations, and stakeholders has occurred throughout the planning process.
