Because of fiscal constraints, a commitment to improvements that address all of the need factors could not be made and the environmental review process is being converted from a standard EIS to a Tier 1 EIS. The FHWA, in cooperation with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), will prepare a Tier 1 EIS for proposed improvements to address safety, operational and capacity concerns on approximately 18 miles of US 51 between Interstate 39/90, east of the City of Stoughton, to US 12/ 18 (Madison South Beltline Highway), north of the Village of McFarland. The study will also examine a bypass of Stoughton, as well as potential operational improvements on existing US 51 in Stoughton. As alternatives to capacity improvements on US 51, the study will consider improvements on highways other than US 51 that might address the needs of travelers between the southeast portion of Dane County and the Madison Urban area. The Tier 1 EIS will evaluate the social, economic, and environmental impacts of the alternatives within the existing US 51 highway corridor, and other full build improvements on other regional highway corridors. The objective of this project is to address existing and future transportation demand and safety concerns as identified in the US 51 Needs Assessment Report. The Tier 1 EIS will be prepared in accordance with 23 U.S.C. 139, 23 CFR 771, and 40 CFR 1500–1508. Completion of the Tier 1 EIS and the Record of Decision (ROD) is expected in 2018. Public involvement is a critical component of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and will occur throughout the development of the draft and final Tier 1 EIS. All environmental documents will be made available for review by federal and state resource agencies and the public. Specific efforts to encourage involvement by, and solicit comments from, minority and low-income populations in the project study area will be made, with public involvement meetings held throughout the environmental document process. Public notice will be given as to the time and place of public involvement meetings. A public hearing will be held after the completion of the Draft Tier 1 EIS. Inquiries related to this study can be sent to jeff.berens@dot.wi.gov.
