The FAA encourages the public to submit comments on the compatibility of the Proposed Action and alternatives with these special purpose laws. An electronic version of the Draft EIS is available on the FAA Office of Commercial Space Transportation website at: https://www.faa.gov/about/ office_org/headquarters_offices/ast/ environmental/nepa_docs/review/ documents_progress/camden_ spaceport/. The FAA encourages all interested agencies, organizations, Native American tribes, and members of the public to submit comments concerning the analysis presented in the Draft EIS by May 16, 2018. Comments should be as specific as possible and address the analysis of potential environmental impacts and the adequacy of the proposed action or merits of alternatives and any mitigations being considered. Reviewers should organize their participation so that it is meaningful and makes the agency aware of the viewer’s interests and concerns using quotations and other specific references to the text of the Draft EIS and related documents. Matters that could have been raised with specificity during the comment period on the Draft EIS may not be considered if they are raised for the first time later in the decision process. This commenting procedure is intended to ensure that substantive comments and concerns are made available to the FAA in a timely manner so that the FAA has an opportunity to address them. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, be advised that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold from public review your personal identifying information, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Due to the large turnout during the public scoping meetings, the FAA will hold two public hearings to solicit comments from the public concerning the content of the Draft EIS on Wednesday, April 11 and Thursday, April 12, 2018, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the following location: Camden County Public Service Authority Recreation Center Community Room, 1050 Wildcat Drive, Kingsland, GA 31548 (912–729–5600). At the public hearings, the FAA will present information about the Draft EIS and the environmental review process. Please note the FAA will present VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:54 Mar 15, 2018 Jkt 244001 identical information at each public hearing. If you are planning to provide oral comments during the hearing, we ask that you speak at only one of the hearings, so that everyone wanting to present comments has the opportunity to do so, as time is limited. The purpose of the public hearings is to afford the public and other interested parties the opportunity to comment on the analysis of the Proposed Action and alternatives presented in the Draft EIS. Members of the public and other interested parties will be provided the opportunity to submit both written and oral comments. The hearings will include a poster information session and an FAA presentation, followed by a public statement period in which members of the public can present up to a threeminute statement. The FAA will transcribe oral comments. All comments received during the comment period will be given equal weight and taken into consideration during preparation of the Final EIS. Under the Proposed Action, the FAA would issue a Launch Site Operator License to the County. The license would allow the County to offer Spaceport Camden to commercial launch operators to conduct launches of liquid-fueled, small to medium-large lift-class, orbital and suborbital vertical launch vehicles. The license would allow up to 12 vertical launches and up to 12 associated launch vehicle firststage landings per year. In support of the launches, there would be up to 12 wet dress rehearsals and up to 12 static fire engine tests per year. All vehicles would launch to the east, from between 83 degrees (slightly north of due east) and 115 degrees (approximately east southeast), over the Intracoastal Waterway, Cumberland Island National Seashore and/or Little Cumberland Island, and the Atlantic Ocean. The Proposed Action includes possible recovery of the first stage by either landing the stage at Spaceport Camden or landing the stage on a barge approximately 200 to 300 miles off shore in the Atlantic Ocean and returning it to Spaceport Camden. Alternatives under consideration in the Draft EIS include the Proposed Action, an Ocean-Landing Only Alternative (similar to the Proposed Action except first-stage landings would only occur on a barge approximately 200 to 300 miles off shore in the Atlantic Ocean), and the No Action Alternative. The Draft EIS evaluates the potential direct, indirect, and cumulative environmental impacts that may result from the Proposed Action, OceanLanding Only Alternative, and the No PO 00000 Frm 00143 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11811 Action Alternative. The FAA assessed impact categories to provide a context for understanding and assessing the potential environmental impacts of the construction and operation, as well as secondary (induced) impacts associated with the Proposed Action and alternatives. The Draft EIS focuses on the following impact categories: Air quality; biological resources (including fish, wildlife, and plants); climate; coastal resources; Department of Transportation Act, Section 4(f) (including park and recreational lands, wildlife and waterfowl refuges, and historic sites in transportation project development); farmlands; hazardous materials, solid waste, and pollution prevention; historical, architectural, archeological, and cultural resources; land use; natural resources and energy supply; noise and compatible land use; socioeconomics, environmental justice, and children’s environmental health and safety risks; visual effects (including light emissions), and water resources (including wetlands, floodplains, surface waters, groundwater, and wild and scenic rivers). The following topics were also analyzed and are appended to the Draft EIS: Health and safety, soils and geology, transportation, and airspace. Issued in Washington, DC, on March 9, 2018.

AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:54 Mar 15, 2018 Jkt 244001 Notice of intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). ACTION: The FHWA, as the Lead Federal Agency, and MDOT SHA, as the Local Project Sponsor, are issuing this notice to advise the public of our intention to prepare an EIS for the I–495 & I–270 Managed Lanes Study (Study). The Study is the first element of a broader Traffic Relief Plan as announced by Governor Larry Hogan in September 2017, which considers improvements along the entire length of I–495 (Capital Beltway), as well as the entire length of I–270 (Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Highway) up to I– 70 in Frederick County, Maryland. This EIS will evaluate the potential environmental impacts of alternatives that address congestion within the specific Study scope of I–495 from south of the American Legion Bridge in Fairfax County, Virginia to east of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge and on I–270 from I–495 to I–370, including the east and west I–270 spurs in Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties, Maryland. The EIS will be prepared in accordance with regulations implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and provisions of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act and will include a range of reasonable alternatives, including a ‘‘No Build’’ alternative.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The purpose of this notice is to: (1) Alert interested parties to the FHWA and MDOT SHA plan to prepare the EIS; (2) provide information on the nature of the proposed action; (3) solicit public and agency input regarding the scope of the EIS, including the purpose and need, alternatives to be considered, and impacts to be evaluated; and (4) announce that public and agency scoping meetings will be conducted. The Study limits extend to areas in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties, Maryland along I–495 (Capital Beltway) from south of the American SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00144 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Legion Bridge in Fairfax County, Virginia, to east of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge and on I–270 (Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Highway) from I– 495 to I–370 including the east and west I–270 spurs. At the present time, high travel demand from commuter, business, and recreational trips results in severe congestion nearly 10 hours a day in the Study corridors. Travelers place a high value on reaching their destinations in a timely manner, and in recent years, the Study corridors have become so unreliable that uncertain travel times are experienced daily. Managed lanes are needed to provide more dependable travel times and congestion relief. Motorists on I–495 and I–270 do not have an option for efficient travel during extensive periods of congestion. Additional roadway management options are needed to improve travel choices. Additional capacity and improvements to enhance reliability must be financially viable. MDOT’s traditional funding sources would be unable to effectively finance, construct, operate, and maintain highway systems of this magnitude. A revenue source that provides necessary funding, such as tolling options, is needed to provide additional capacity and improvements addressing existing and anticipated high travel demand. A Public-Private Partnership (P3) with the state will be pursued to develop innovative approaches to design, build, finance, operate, and maintain the potential improvements developed through the NEPA Study. The intent of the proposed action to be assessed in the Study is to accommodate existing traffic and longterm traffic growth, enhance trip reliability, and provide an additional roadway travel choice. Additional roadway options would also accommodate homeland security needs and improve the movement of goods and services throughout the Study corridor. The EIS will include a review of existing and future traffic, existing roadway infrastructure, and existing environmental conditions to establish context for the identification of alternatives and assessment of potential impacts. The analyses undertaken during the EIS will result in identification of the alternative that best meets the Study purpose and need while considering the environmental impacts of that alternative. The alternatives evaluated in the EIS will include build alternatives which provide additional capacity and offer travel choices for travelers on I–495 and I–270.
