Protecting Our Local Roads

The 2011 Revised Draft Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the Oil, Gas and Solution Mining Regulatory Program (rdSGEIS) for high-volume hydraulic fracturing (HVHF) has identified a number of impacts that HVHF will have on local roads, and has proposed measures to mitigate them.

On May 31, 2013, the Illinois Senate passed SB1715, the Hydraulic Fracturing Regulation Act, by a vote of 52-3, the day after it passed the House by a vote of 108-9.

There are engineering, logistical and legal obstacles to insuring good management of local roads in the face of the high-intensity truck travel associated with Marcellus Shale gas drilling.

While shale gas development can result in rapid local economic development, negative externalities associated with the process may adversely affect the prices of nearby homes.

A leaked internal New York State Department of Transportation document suggests that the state is not ready for an estimated increase of up to 1.5 million heavy truck trips per year that could result from natural gas drilling in the Marcellus Shale.
