Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Draft and Final EIS documents
will be prepared. The EIS will document the need for proposed
improvements, the alternatives considered to address the identified
needs, and then present and discuss the impacts resulting from the
reasonable range of alternatives being considered. A discussion of
potential mitigation concepts will also be included, as will a summary
of the coordination conducted with the public, interested
stakeholders, and review agencies.
Environmental documentation is required by national and Wisconsin
environmental policy acts for projects with potentially significant
social, economic, natural resource and other impacts. The Federal
Highway Administration (FHWA) is the lead agency for the EIS, which
will be prepared in accordance with FHWA guidelines.
The EIS and study process is scheduled for completion in August
