Download as PDF 45742 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 169 / Friday, August 30, 2019 / Notices built as a contiguous Missile Defense Complex, similar to that found at Fort Greely, Alaska, and would consist of a deployment of up to a total of 60 Ground-Based Interceptors (GBIs) in up to three GBI fields. The GBIs would not be fired from their deployment site except in the Nation’s defense and no test firing would be conducted at a CIS. The overall system architecture and baseline requirements for a notional CIS include, but are not limited to, the GBI fields, Command Launch Equipment, In-Flight Interceptor Communication System Data Terminals, GMD Communication Network, supporting facilities, such as lodging and dining, recreation, warehouse and bulk storage, vehicle storage and maintenance, fire station, hazardous materials/waste storage, and roads and parking where necessary. Candidate site locations considered in the EIS are: Fort Custer Training Center in Michigan; Camp Ravenna Joint Military Training Center (Recently renamed Camp James A. Garfield) in Ohio; and Fort Drum in New York. The Final EIS also analyzed a No Action Alternative or no CIS deployment, which is the preferred alternative. Consistent with the 2019 Missile Defense Review, the DoD does not have a proposed action, budget authority, or direction to deploy as CIS and does not propose to deploy a CIS at this time. For each of the candidate site locations, the following resource areas were assessed: Air quality, air space, biological, cultural, environmental justice, geology and soils, hazardous materials and hazardous waste management, health and safety, land use, noise, socioeconomics, transportation, utilities, water, wetlands, and visual and aesthetics. Public reading copies of the Final EIS are available for review at the public libraries within the communities near the Candidate Locations.

The Final Environmental Assessment (EA) evaluated potential impacts resulting from the proposed cemetery’s contiguous acreage, by utilizing the former Navy Annex site, located south of the existing cemetery, and relocating roadways and modifying an interchange, in Arlington, Virginia. The EA also described the potential adverse effects on cultural resources related to the integration of the Air Force Memorial into the cemetery as part of the expansion, the conversion of Patton Drive to a pedestrian trail, and the demolition of a portion of the boundary wall. ANC and key stakeholders—the Federal Highway Administration, Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division, the Virginia Department of Transportation, and Arlington County developed a roadway realignment and relocation that creates an opportunity to address multimodal capacity along Columbia Pike while enabling the cemetery to maximize land available for internment capacity, as provided through Congressional legislation. DATES: The Draft FONSI is available for a 30-day review period. Written comments will be accepted until the close of business on September 30, 2019. The public is invited to submit comments to Ms. Kathy Perdue, Department of the Army, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Norfolk District, Planning and Policy Branch, 803 Front St., Norfolk, VA 23510 or via email: SouthernExpansion@usace.army.mil.

ANC, a Direct Report Unit of the Headquarters Department of the Army, is the lead federal agency for this Project, and the USACE has prepared the draft NEPA document on behalf of (ANC), assisted by the HNTB Corporation. The following are served as cooperating agencies during the NEPA process: Federal Highway Administration, Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division (FHWA–EFLHD), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC), the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), and Arlington County. The ANC and the USACE also considered the input of the public. ANC is located within the eastern boundary of Arlington County, in the northeastern corner of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and at the western terminus of Memorial Avenue, directly across the Arlington Memorial Bridge and the Potomac River from the District of Columbia (Washington DC). ANC is our nation’s most hallowed ground. This Army cemetery consists of 624 acres and is the final resting place of over 400,000 service members and their families. The proposed Southern Expansion site, bounded by Washington Boulevard (Route 27), I–395, the VDOT Maintenance Complex, the Foxcroft Heights neighborhood, and the ANC, involves approximately 70 acres, including roadway corridors, among three landowners: ANC, Arlington County, and VDOT. Proposed Action. The Proposed Action is to establish a single contiguous parcel of land south of the cemetery by relocating and realigning local roadways and developing the parcel to increase interment capacity. The contiguous parcel would be created through the replacement of Southgate Road with a new South Nash Street, and realignment of Columbia Pike and the Columbia Pike/Washington Boulevard (Route 27) interchange (adjacent to the Pentagon). The existing Air Force Memorial (AFM) would be incorporated into the cemetery expansion, existing Patton Drive would be converted into a trail, and the existing Operations Complex would be relocated south of Columbia Pike. FHWA–EFLHD, in addition to its role as a cooperating agency, is designing the roadways that would be relocated as a result of ANC expansion.
