Environmental Impact Statement: Hawaii County, HI

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of intent.


SUMMARY: The FHWA is issuing this notice to advise the public that an 
environmental impact statement (EIS) will be prepared for a proposed 
highway project in Hawaii County, Hawaii. This notice rescinds and 
replaces the FHWA notice of intent published on December 2, 1991, which 
addressed a 14.5-mile portion of the currently proposed project.

W.R. Bird, Environmental Planning Engineer, Federal Highway 
Administration, P.O. Box 25246, Denver, Colorado 80225-0246, telephone 

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the state of 
Hawaii, the county of Hawaii, and the U.S. Department of the Army, will 
prepare an EIS for a portion of Hawaii State Highway (SH) 200, Saddle 
Road. The portion of Saddle Road covered by this notice of intent 
begins in Hilo, Hawaii, at approximately milepost 5 (the intersection 
with the proposed Poainako Street extension) and proceeds approximately 
48 miles westward to the junction with Hawaii SH 190, the Mamalahoa 
Highway. The proposed improvement will be a two-lane paved roadway with 
paved shoulders. The purpose of this proposal is to provide a safe and 
functional road by eliminating existing safety hazards, including 
conflicts between the traveling public and military training 
operations. The Military Traffic Management Command has authorized 
Defense Access Road funds to prepare an EIS for the entire length of 
Saddle Road (including such preliminary design work as may be necessary 
for completing the EIS) and for engineering design work for the 14.5-
mile section within the Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA). Alternatives 
being evaluated include: (1) The ``no build,'' (2) the improvement of 
the existing facility to approved Hawaii State Department of 
Transportation design criteria, and (3) improvement of the existing 
road, as in (2) above, with a northward realignment at the PTA. Other 
alternatives, including additional realignments that are developed 
during the scoping process, will also be evaluated.
    Notices describing the proposed action and soliciting comments will 
be sent to appropriate Federal, State, and local agencies and to 
private organizations and citizens who have expressed interest in this 
proposal. Interagency meetings, public scoping meetings, and public 
hearings will be held in the project area and in other appropriate 
areas. Information on the time and place of public scoping meetings and 
public hearings will be provided in the local news media. The draft EIS 
will be available for public and agency review and comment prior to the 
    To ensure that the full range of issues related to the proposed 
action are addressed and all significant issues are identified, 
comments and suggestions are invited from all interested parties. 
Comments and questions concerning the proposed action should be 
directed to the address provided above.
