Environmental Impact Statement; Asotin County, WA

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Recission of notice of intent.

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

SUMMARY: The FHWA is issuing this notice to advise the public that, 
based on environmental studies and comments received during the scoping 
process and public information meetings for the proposed project, it 
has been decided to prepare an Environmental Assessment (EA) in lieu of 
an Environmental Impact Statement. The Notice of Intent which appeared 
in the Federal Register /Vol. 58, No. 149/Thursday, August 5, 1993, 
regarding a proposed highway project in Asotin County, Washington, is 
hereby rescinded.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
Lynn Porter, Area Engineer, Federal Highway Administration, 711 S. 
Capitol Way, Evergreen Plaza Bldg., suite 501, Olympia, Washington 
98501-1284, Telephone: (206) 753-2120.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: An EA for the proposed project was approved 
for circulation on December 28, 1993. Subsequent distribution included 
State and Federal agencies and interested parties identified during 
project planning and scoping. The EA discusses a proposal (build 
alternative) to construct a new 1.1 mile Fleshman Way roadway on a 
route north of 16th Avenue in Asotin County, Washington. The proposed 
improvements would also involve the reconstruction of the existing 15th 
Street between 16th Avenue and Bridge Street (U.S. Highway 12) for a 
distance of about 1.5 miles. It would also include a new interchange or 
intersection in the vicinity of 13th Street and a new intersection on 
16th Avenue and Fleshman Way.
    Improvements to the corridor are considered necessary to address 
existing traffic operations problems, to meet projected traffic demand 
and to improve safety. Existing deficient features include lane and 
shoulder widths, horizontal and vertical alignments, and pavement 
structure. The proposed project is included in the Asotin County and 
the City of Clarkston Comprehensive Plans as a link between U.S. 
Highway 12 west of Clarkston and the Southway Bridge, and provides a 
southern connection between the Cities of Clarkston and Lewiston.
    Several alternatives were evaluated as part of the environmental 
studies conducted for the project. However, only one build alternative 
and the no-build are under consideration at present. The build 
alternative includes a four-lane roadway on a new location, generally 
north of 16th Avenue, as described above, and intersecting 15th Street 
south of Highland Avenue. It also includes widening 15th Street to 
three lanes (two travel lanes and a continuous left-turn lane).
    Letters describing the proposed action and soliciting comments, 
have been sent to appropriate Federal, State, and local agencies, and 
to private organizations and citizens who have previously expressed or 
are known to have interest in the proposal. A series of public meetings 
were held in Asotin County between January and August 1993. A public 
hearing has been scheduled for January 27, 1994. The EA is currently 
available for review and comments.
    Comments on the EA and the proposed action will be accepted until 
ten days after the public hearing. To ensure that the full range of 
issues related to this proposed action are addressed and any 
significant issues identified, comments and suggestions are invited 
from all interested parties. Comments or questions concerning this 
proposed action and the EA should be directed to the FHWA at the 
address provided above.
