This project is needed because congestion and safety concerns are rising within the project corridor and travel times for local and through traffic have increased. These conditions have arisen from increased and projected regional travel demand due to planned community growth, limited local city street connectivity to and across I–90, and mobility limitations at existing interchanges. Ten alternatives under consideration include (a) taking no action, (b) applying enhanced Transportation Systems and Transportation Demand Management methods on existing transportation systems, (c) Transit, and (d) seven combinations of actions that combine some or all of the following: Interchange modifications at the Spokane Street Interchange, interchange modifications at the SH 41 Interchange, expansion of SH 41 to six lanes; interchange modifications at the Seltice Way Interchange, a new interchange or an I–90 grade separation at Greensferry Road, an I–90 grade separation at Syringa Street, applying access management on Seltice Way, and auxiliary lanes and/or collector distributor roads on I–90 from the Spokane Street Interchange to the SH 41 Interchange. Letters describing the proposed action and soliciting comments will be sent to appropriate Federal, State, and local agencies, and to provide organizations and citizens who have previously expressed or are known to have interest in this proposal. A series of public meetings will be held in Post Falls. A scoping meeting will be noticed and held in Post Falls. In addition, a public hearing will be held. Public notice will be given of the time and place of the meetings and hearing. The draft EIS will be available for public and agency review and comment prior to the public hearing. To ensure that the full range of issues related to this proposed action are addressed and all significant issues identified, comments, and suggestions are invited from all interested parties. Comments or questions concerning this proposed action and the EIS should be directed to the FHWA or ITD at the address provided above. Authority: 23 U.S.C. 315; 23 CFR 771.123; 49 CFR 1.48.
