Notice of Intent To Prepare a Limited Scope Supplemental 
Environmental Impact Statement: Fond du Lac and Sheboygan Counties, 
Wisconsin

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of Intent.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FHWA is issuing this notice to advise the public that a 
new Limited Scope Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (LS SEIS) 
will be prepared for proposed transportation improvements on Wisconsin 
State Highway 23 (WIS 23) from U.S. Highway 151 to County Highway P in 
Fond du Lac and Sheboygan Counties, Wisconsin.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Anna Varney, Senior Field Operations 
Engineer, FHWA, 525 Junction Road, Suite 8000, Madison, WI 53717; 
Telephone: (608) 829-7514. You may also contact Steve Krebs, Director, 
Bureau of Technical Services, Wisconsin Department of Transportation, 
4802 Sheboygan Ave., Madison, WI 53707; Telephone (608) 220-2278.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the Wisconsin 
Department of Transportation (WisDOT), will prepare a new LS SEIS in 
accordance with 23 CFR 771.130(f) and 40 CFR 1502.9 for proposed 
improvements along approximately 19 miles of WIS 23 from U.S. Highway 
151 in the City of Fond du Lac to County Highway P in the City of 
Plymouth, in Fond du Lac and Sheboygan Counties, Wisconsin. In 
accordance with its regulations, FHWA will evaluate and provide 
additional analysis, if needed, on any new or changed impacts to the 
human and natural environment since the issuance of the March 17, 2014 
Limited Scope Supplemental Final Environmental Impact Statement. In 
addition, the new LS SEIS will update and explain the methodology used 
to develop the traffic forecasts, explain the role of demographic data 
in traffic forecasts, as well as review the evaluation of reasonable 
alternatives.
    The new LS SEIS will follow the same process and format as the 
original LS SEIS (Draft, Final, and Record of Decision [ROD]), except 
that scoping is not required. The original LS SEIS and other project 
documents will be available on the WIS 23 project Web site at https://wisconsindot.gov/Pages/projects/by-region/ne/wis23exp/default. After 
public review of the Draft LS SEIS document and public hearing(s), FHWA 
and WisDOT will issue a Final LS SEIS and ROD. The Final LS SEIS and 
ROD are anticipated to be issued as one combined document pursuant to 
23 U.S.C. 139(n)(2), unless criteria are met for issuing the documents 
separately. Completion of the Final LS SEIS and ROD is anticipated in 
2018.
    The Draft LS SEIS will be available for public and agency review 
and comment prior to a public hearing. Public notice of the Draft LS 
SEIS and the date and time of the public hearing(s) will be posted on 
the project Web site and in local newspapers. To ensure that the full 
range of issues related to this proposed action are addressed and all 
significant issues identified, comments and suggestions are invited 
from all interested parties. Comments or questions concerning this 
proposed action can be directed to the FHWA or WisDOT contacts listed 
above, or the WIS 23 Study Project Manager Bryan Lipke at the WisDOT 
Northeast Region, 944 Vanderperren Way, Green Bay, WI
