ACTION: Notice of Intent to Prepare a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement. AGENCY: The Federal Highway Administration is issuing this notice to advise the public of its intent to prepare a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS), in cooperation with the Virginia Department of SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Transportation, for Section II of the proposed U.S. Route 121 (previously known as the Coalfields Expressway) in Wise, Dickenson, and Buchanan Counties, Virginia.

DATES: Submit comments on or before September 22, 2014. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 1. Description of Proposed Action and Background: The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) proposes to construct Section II of U.S. Route 121, a limited access roadway on new location for approximately 26 miles, which would be located to the north of and roughly parallel to Virginia Route 83 (VA 83) between the Town of Pound and the U.S. Route 460 Connector in Buchanan County. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) approved a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) in September 2001 and issued a Record of Decision (ROD) in November 2001 for the Coalfields Expressway Location Study, which evaluated alternative corridors for the new roadway, now designated as U.S. Route 121. The FEIS covered the full 59 miles of the proposed roadway in Virginia from U.S. Route 23 at the Town of Pound to VA Route 83 at the West Virginia state line. The ROD identified Alternative F1 as the selected alternative, and it also indicated that the project would be designed and constructed in numerous phases. In June 2012, FHWA approved for public availability an Environmental Assessment (EA) for Section II of the Coalfields Expressway/U.S. Route 121 that evaluated an alternative that was not fully evaluated in the 2001 FEIS. The EA can be accessed at: http:// www.virginiadot.org/projects/resources/ Bristol/CFX_SectionII_Environmental_ Assessment_June2012.pdf. In August 2012, public hearings were held to present the findings of the environmental studies and to receive comments on the EA. A large volume of comments were received on the EA, some which suggested the preparation of a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS). FHWA subsequently determined that a SEIS is necessary for Section II. E:\FR\FM\21AUN1.SGM 21AUN1
