Environmental Impact Studies are one type of NEPA review, but DDOT would likely perform a less intensive version than a full EIS.

Such reviews are required for Federal funding. If DC wants to apply for Federal money, they *have* to do a NEPA. So it's not so much a waste of money as it is an investment. Spend a little in order to get a lot back.

Now, we can talk about whether the Federal NEPA requirement makes any sense or not, but that's not up to DC. If DC wants Federal money, there has to be a NEPA.
