Integrated Corridor Management Deployment Planning Grants, 77550 [2013-30487]

Download as PDF 77550 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 246 / Monday, December 23, 2013 / Notices purpose of the proposed action is to identify the appropriate transportation solution(s) to rectify the increasing inability to safely and effectively move people, goods, and services through the study area. Alternatives: Alternative corridors will be developed within the previously defined study area. Environmental Review Process: The EIS will be developed in accordance with Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] part 1500 et seq.) implementing NEPA (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), and FHWA regulations. FHWA and ADOT will use a tiered process, as provided for in 40 CFR 1508.28 and in accordance with FHWA guidance, in the completion of the environmental study. If the Record of Decision indicates that FHWA has selected one of the alternative corridors as the environmentally preferred alternative, the evaluation of a specific highway alignment within the selected corridor would occur in a subsequent phase of the study. Subsequent Tier 2 assessment(s) would address a proposed highway alignment to be developed within the alternative corridor selected in the Tier 1 EIS, and would incorporate by reference the Tier 1 data, evaluations, and findings. The Tier 2 NEPA evaluation(s) would concentrate on sitespecific issues and alternatives relevant to implementing a new highway alignment within the selected Tier 1 alternative corridor, and would identify the environmental consequences and measures necessary to mitigate environmental impacts at a site-specific level of detail.
