On September 9, 2011, USACE published a notice in the Federal Register (76 FR 55887), informing the public of the availability of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) that analyzes the potential effects of implementing each of four build and the ‘‘no-build’’ alternative scenarios for a four-lane arterial highway from the southern terminus of the current, modern four-lane arterial portion of LA 21 in Bush, Louisiana, to I–12, a distance between 17.4 and 21 miles. The FEIS has been prepared to respond to comments received from agencies, organizations, and members of the public on the DEIS. The USACE is the lead Federal agency responsible for the FEIS and information contained in the FEIS serves as the basis for a Department of the Army permit decision under section 404 of the Clean Water Act. The FEIS also provides information for Federal, State and local agencies having jurisdictional responsibility for affected resources. Any comments on the FEIS will be considered by USACE and responses will be provided for substantive issues raised which have not been addressed in the DEIS or FEIS.

LADOTD has stated that the proposed highway is needed as an alternative north-south connection that could reduce congestion and delays for those traveling from northern St. Tammany Parish and Washington Parish to I–12. As stated by LADOTD, the needs of the proposed action are to: (1) Fulfill the legislative mandate, Louisiana Revised Statute 47:820.2B(e); (2) provide a fourlane arterial to I–12 from the southern terminus of the current, modern, fourlane arterial portion of LA 21; (3) divert traffic from Washington and northern St. Tammany Parishes onto a four-lane, arterial to free capacity for local trips on segments of existing routes in southern suburban areas and reduce congestion during peak and some non-peak periods; and (4) support and enhance the existing and developing economic activities in Washington and northern St. Tammany Parishes that rely on the highway network to reach their markets by providing a travel time savings. The ‘‘No-build and four build alternatives where evaluated in the DEIS and carried over into the FEIS. • No-Build alternative—Continuation of existing roadway network in the region in its current condition to serve as the transportation network. • Alternative P (applicant’s proposed alignment)—Construction of a new 17.4 mile highway segment beginning at the intersection of LA HWY 21and LA HWY 41 following the abandoned railroad line to a point north of Talisheek, Louisiana before heading southwesterly to connect to I–12 at the LA Hwy 1088 interchange with I–12. • Alternative Q (least damaging practicable alternative)—Construction of a new 19.8 mile highway segment beginning at the intersection of LA HWY 21 and LA HWY 41 following the abandoned railroad line to a point approximately 1.7 miles north of LA 36 leaving the abandoned railroad line connecting to LA 434 then to I–12 at an existing interchange. • Alternative J—Construction of a new 21.1 mile highway segment beginning at the intersection of LA HWY 21 and LA HWY 41 following the abandoned railroad line to a point north of the Slidell Municipal Airport, widening Airport Road before connecting to I–12. • Alternative B/O—Construction of a new 19.5 mile highway segment upgrading Existing LA HWY 21 to just E:\FR\FM\09MRN1.SGM 09MRN1
