Tribal concerns can be identified at any phase of the project development continuum, from initial planning through construction and beyond. This workshop examines tribal concerns in the context of the required regulatory framework for cultural and natural resources and offers best practices to balance the need to identify and address tribal concerns in project development with the need to deliver transportation projects in a timely manner.
