Studies: Planning vs. Implementation
The studies listed are used for a variety of purposes. A planning study is used in a planning document, such as the long-range transportation plan. These studies will not include detailed data from an engineer nor an environmental report. An implementation study is used to confirm an alignment or placement of a project and the engineering and environmental reports needed to build the project. Some studies provide both aspects: planning as well as an implementation schedule. In most of these cases, an implementation study for any specific project is still needed.
