The Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) is currently being prepared. The FEIS identifies Revised Alternative 3 as the Preferred Alternative ,which consists of design refinements made to Alternative 3 based on the results of additional traffic modeling conducted after the DEIS was completed. Those design refinements resulted in a reduced project footprint and reduced overall environmental impacts. On March 3, 2015 the team made a Presentation to the project's Technical Advisory Committee. The TAC endorsed Revised Alternative 3 as the Preferred Alternative.
A Conceptual Phasing Plan has been prepared that shows how potential phasing of the design and construction could occur should the project be approved and funding become available.
The FEIS is anticipated to be completed and made available to the public in fall 2015.
