The environmental process gives the public and other agencies the opportunity to provide input and comment on proposed highway improvements.

The purpose and goal of the environmental documents is to pull together the publics' and resource agencies' interests and concerns. It also aids to identify a recommended course of action, documents alternatives considered and the decisions made for highway projects.

Environmental Assessment (EA)

An EA report was completed in May and June 2009, after finding no significant impact it was posted for public comment. After the 30 day public comment period, the EA was submitted to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for approval. The document was approved on July 13, 2009.

An environmental re-evaluation was completed April 25, 2013.
