SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The FHWA, in cooperation with the SDDOT and Pennington County, South Dakota, will prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on a proposal for roadway improvements on South Rochford Road in Pennington County, South Dakota. The proposed project would involve roadway improvements to South Rochford Road for approximately 10 miles between the Town of Rochford and the intersection of South Rochford Road and Deerfield Road. The proposed project is considered necessary to improve year-round access to the Town of Rochford from the Deerfield Lake area. The existing roadway is difficult to maintain with a gravel surface, steep grades, drainage issues, and curvilinear alignment. Alternatives under consideration include: (1) No action; (2) roadway improvements along the existing alignment; and (3) roadway improvements on a new alignment. The proposed work would include reconstructing the two-lane roadway, providing an all-weather surface, and improving the drainage and associated roadway structures. Adjusting existing utilities and acquisition of right-of-way (ROW) may be necessary. Based on preliminary environmental analysis, it is anticipated that the proposed project may require the following Federal permits: Section 404 Permit for filling/dredging water of the United States and Section 401 Water Quality Certification. A Special Use Permit may be required from the U.S. Forest Service. An agency scoping meeting and public scoping/information meeting are planned with the meetings scheduled between February and June of 2012.
