ACTION: Notice of intent. AGENCY: The FHWA is issuing this notice to advise the public that an environmental impact statement (EIS) will be prepared for improvements to the corridor generally following the existing pathway created by Missouri Bottom Road, Aubuchon Road, and Charbonier Road between Earth City Expressway and Howdershell/ Shackelford Road in northwestern St. Louis County, Missouri. These roads lie within the floodplain of the Missouri River. The hydrological conditions of the area create a situation where shortterm flood-related closures occur along this pathway. The occurrence and length of closures are often difficult to predict; the detours caused by the closures are often lengthy. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Peggy J.
