The Section 3 Environmental Assessment (EA) has been finalized and recieved Federal Highway (FHWA) approval. That allows the I-70 improvements to proceed to the next phases of development - design and construction. Currently no finding is available for major I-70 improvements, therefore the timeframe for design and construction is unknown.
The final version of the EA is available on this Web site (click on DOCUMENTS above).
An EA is a document that details the known and anticipated impacts of I-70 improvements on the natural, social, economic and man-made environments. The EA recommends a preferred alternative for the location and basic configuration of I-70 widening and interchange improvements between Boonville and Rocheport.
Prior to being finalized, a Draft EA document was distributed, and an official public hearing was held in Boonville on December 7, 2004. The official comment period for the document ended on December 15, 2004.
If you have questions or concerns about activities in Section 3, please write, e-mail or call the project hot line at 1-800-590-0066.
