Early Project Coordination (EPC) Meeting and Letter (pdf 21 kb)
An EPC Meeting is a chance for WSDOT to present a project to the MAP Team and get early technical and regulatory feedback from each resource agency before permit applications are developed. Specific EPC meeting expectations are outlined in the MAP Team EPC Meeting Purpose Statement (pdf 11 kb). A site visit is usually part of an EPC meeting and within 30 days after the EPC Meeting date, the MAP Team Manager sends a detailed EPC Letter (pdf 159 kb) to the WSDOT Environmental Coordinator. To schedule an EPC meeting contact the MAP Team Coordinator.
