Since the advent of increased public awareness concerning hazardous waste and the enactment of statutes governing these wastes, hazardous waste has become an important component impacting the highway planning and property acquisition process. Hazardous waste impacts have been realized by the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) during the Final Design phase of a new, 46-mile highway facility, commonly referred to as the Relief Route Project. The principal thrust of this paper is to inform and promote sound engineering decisions concerning the methods which should be taken to minimize the impacts hazardous waste can have on a highway project.
