- Considering environmental, community and economic goals early in the process.

- Using the information, analysis and products that already have been and will be developed during the process to inform the environmental review process.

- Developing a purpose and need.

- Creating alternatives for the corridor that will have the least impact on the historic, cultural, environmental, and residential areas.

- Looking at the feasibility of each alternative, working towards the preferred alternative and what fits the road and the community.
