GBUAPCD RULE 1236 PROJ. EXEMPT FROM REGIONAL EMISS. ANALYSES
LAST REVISED 11/11/11

§ 1236 Projects exempt from regional emissions analyses.

Notwithstanding the other requirements of this rule, highway and transit projects of the types listed in Table 3 are exempt from regional emissions analysis requirements. The local effects of these projects with respect to CO or PM10 concentrations must be considered to determine if a hot-spot analysis is required prior to making a project-level conformity determination. These projects may then proceed to the project development process even in the absence of a conforming transportation plan and TIP. A particular action of the type listed in Table 3 is not exempt from regional emissions analysis if the MPO in consultation with other agencies (see 1206(c)(1)(iii)), the EPA, and the FHWA (in the case of a highway project) or the FTA (in the case of a transit project) concur that it has potential regional impacts for any reason.
