being identified and work was not conducted to advance the study 
further. Accordingly, FHWA is rescinding the Notice of Intent to 
prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the Interstate 64 Hampton

the Hampton Roads Crossing Study Supplemental Environmental Impact 
Statement, which is looking at alternatives over a much larger study 
area. A Notice of Intent to prepare that Supplemental Environmental 
Impact Statement was published in the Federal Register in June (80 FR 
36038, June 23, 2015).

    Authority:  23 U.S.C. 315; 23 CFR 771.
