Public involvement is a basic component of the environmental review process. DOT&PF and FHWA have involved the public throughout this project.
Appendix A of the ROD includes copies of all comments made on the Final EIS and responses to those comments. In response to public comments, FHWA has (1) added wildlife and pedestrian pathway mitigation, and (2) included clarifications and corrections where most needed. Overall, the analysis in the EIS that led to identifying the Juneau Creek Alternative as the preferred alternative was not substantively changed by the comments.
Comments for the Final EIS were accepted from March 16 – April 16, 2018. The public comment period is now closed.
If you have questions about the EIS process, email the project team at email@example.com.
