US 8 (WIS 35-US 53) Corridor Preservation - Environmental documents
When corridor study limits are this large, a tiered environmental
process is preferred. The tiered process is used to eliminate repetitive discussions of the same issue and to focus on the actual
issues at each level of environmental review. It is
a means of accomplishing National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)
requirements in as efficient a manner as possible.
The FEIS has been published and hard copies are available for
viewing at the Northwest Region Transportation office, 1701 North 4th
Street, Superior, WI.
Each of the Tier II studies (see segments below) are a more
detailed analysis of segments of the Tier I Corridor Study and take
approximately two years to complete. Tier II is scheduled to be
completed by 2015.
