The tiered EIS will also serve as a corridor preservation tool for protecting the land needed for future transportation improvements and to assist local officials in making compatible land use decisions. More detailed Tier 2 environmental documents would be prepared for specific improvement projects when factors such as safety concerns, traffic volumes and existing deficiencies indicate the need for such improvements.
