ACTION: Notice of intent, Bolivar Bridges EIS. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FHWA is issuing this notice to advise the public that an PO 00000 Frm 00108 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 7109 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) will be prepared for a proposed State Highway (SH) 87 bridge connecting Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula in Galveston County, Texas. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Gary Johnson, P.E., Federal Highway Administration, Texas Division, 300 East 8th Street, Room 826, Austin, Texas 78701, Telephone (512) 536–5960. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), in cooperation with TxDOT, will prepare an EIS on a proposal that includes transportation alternatives within the southern portion of Bolivar Peninsula from the Bolivar ferry landing to SH 124, the northern portion of Galveston Island from Interstate Highway (IH) 45 at the Galveston Causeway to the Galveston ferry landing, and Pelican Island. The project area crosses Galveston Bay and the Galveston, Texas City, and Houston ship channels. TxDOT currently operates a free ferry system between Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula. Due to increased operations and maintenance coasts, TxDOT is proposing to replace the existing ferry system with a permanent bridge. Increasing traffic along SH 87 (Ferry Road) has resulted in lengthy delays for residents and visitors. These delays have resulted in slow emergency vehicle response times and long commute times. Public meetings were held in 200 on Bolivar Peninsula and Galveston Island to solicit comments regarding the existing ferry system and potential long term improvements. Citizens expressed a desire for immediate improvements to the ferry system and favored a bridge for longterm improvements. In 2001, a feasibility study was completed which evaluated the existing ferry system and identified and compared alternatives for a proposed bridge location. TxDOT is preparing an EIS to further evaluate viable build alternatives and a no build alternative. The implementation of tolling will be considered as a funding option. The EIS will include a recommended bridge location, number of lanes, roadway configuration, and operational characteristics of the proposed bridge. It will also include a discussion of the effects on socioeconomics, travel patterns, hazardous materials, cultural resources, traffic noise, air quality, biological resources, water resources, floodplains, and wetlands. Correspondence describing the proposed project and soliciting comments has been sent to appropriate Federal, state, regional, and local agencies, and to organizations and E:\FR\FM\10FEN1.SGM 10FEN1
