The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) prepared an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for a proposal to improve the United States Highway 93 (U.S. 93) corridor through Henderson and Boulder City, Nevada, from the Foothills Road grade separation on U.S. 93/95 in Henderson to the western end of the Hoover Dam Bypass project near the Hacienda Hotel and Casino. Western Area Power Administration (Western), an agency within the Department of Energy (DOE), needs to modify its transmission system and facilities to accommodate the construction of the Boulder City Bypass Project (Project). Western was a cooperating agency for the EIS. Western will ensure that its responsibilities under the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) and the Endangered Species Act (ESA) are met before the modifications are implemented.
