Environmental Impact Statement: U.S. 64/Corridor K. The Project 
Begins on U.S. 64 From West of the Ocoee River to State Route 68 Near 
Ducktown in Polk County, TN

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of Intent (NOI).

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

SUMMARY: The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is issuing this 
notice to advise the public that an Environmental Impact Statement 
(EIS) will be prepared for a proposed highway project in Polk County, 
Tennessee.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Charles J. O'Neill, Planning and 
Program Management Team Leader, Federal Highway Administration, 
Tennessee Division Office, Address: 404 BNA Drive, Suite 508, 
Nashville, Tennessee 37217, Telephone: (615) 781-5770, E-mail: 
Charles.ONeill@dot.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the Tennessee 
Department of Transportation, will prepare an EIS for the proposed U.S. 
64/Appalachian Development Corridor K project from west of the Ocoee 
River to State Route 68 near Ducktown, a distance of approximately 20 
miles. The southern boundary of the Corridor K project study area is 
along the Tennessee-Georgia state line. The northern boundary, in 
general, is along the Hiwassee River and Ocoee River watershed 
boundary. A NOI for the same project corridor was previously published 
on August 28, 1999 and then rescinded on May 21, 2008 due to the 
decision that a new EIS was needed to include and evaluate new 
information and a new economic development study.
    Alternatives to be considered include: (1) No-build; (2) a 
Transportation System Management (TSM) alternative; (3) a transit 
alternative; (4) one or more build alternatives that could include 
constructing a roadway on a new location, upgrading existing U.S. 64, 
or a combination of both, and (5) other alternatives that may arise 
from public input. Public scoping meetings will be held for the project 
corridor. As part of the scoping process, federal, state, and local 
agencies and officials; private organizations; citizens; and interest 
groups will have an opportunity to identify issues of concern and 
provide input on the purpose and need for the project, range of 
alternatives, methodology, and the development of the EIS. A 
Coordination Plan has been developed to include the public in the 
project development process. This plan utilizes the following outreach 
efforts to provide information and solicit input: Coordination through 
a Citizens Resource Team, newsletters, an Internet Web site, e-mail and 
direct mail, informational meetings and briefings, public hearings, and 
other efforts as necessary and appropriate. A public hearing will be 
held upon completion of the Draft EIS and public notice will be given 
of the time and place of the hearing. The Draft EIS will be available

for public and agency review and comment prior to the public hearings.
    To ensure that the full range of issues related to this proposed 
action are identified and taken into account, comments and suggestions 
are invited from all interested parties. Comments and questions 
concerning the proposed action should be directed to the FHWA contact 
person identified above at the address provided above.

Executive Order 12372 regarding intergovernmental consultation on
