The Alabama Department of Transportation (“ALDOT”) has recognized environmental justice as an issue in its Statewide Transportation Plan (“SWTP”), a long-range planning document.4 The SWTP, published in June 2000, states that ALDOT is “cognizant of and sensitive to the evolving environmental justice guidance, including Executive Order 12,898, which requires that states . . . consider the extent to which low-income and minority populations may be disproportionately impacted by transportation plans and projects.”5 The document goes on to state that “environmental justice is a relatively new concept in transportation planning and the actions required of the states are still largely undetermined. However, this plan reflects ALDOT's efforts to begin to address environmental justice in statewide planning.”6 As of this writing, there is no other mention of environmental justice issues or implementation of any procedures on ALDOT’s website.
