Federal Highway Administration

Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement: 
Dane County, Wisconsin

AGENCY: Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), Federal 
Highway Administration (FHWA), Department of Transportation.

ACTION: Federal notice of intent to prepare an Environmental Impact 
Statement (EIS).


SUMMARY: The FHWA is issuing this notice to advise the public that an 
EIS will be prepared for a proposed freeway interchange improvement 
project on I-39/90 from the County N interchange in the south to the I-
39/90/94/WIS 30 interchange (Badger Interchange) in the north and on US 
12/18 from the West Broadway interchange in the west to the County AB 
intersection in the east in Dane County in south-central Wisconsin. 
Along US 12/18, improvements at the US 51 (Stoughton Road) interchange 
will also be evaluated from the Voges Rd./Terminal Dr. intersection in 
the south and to the Broadway intersection at the north.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tracey Blankenship, Major Projects 
Program Manager, Federal Highway Administration, 525 Junction Road, 
Suite 8000, Madison, Wisconsin, 53717-2157, Telephone: (608) 829-7510.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the Wisconsin 
Department of Transportation (WisDOT), will prepare an EIS for proposed 
improvements at the I-39/90/US 12/18 interchange (Beltline Interchange) 
and adjacent local road systems, a distance of approximately 13.2 
miles. The purpose of the project is to provide efficient 
transportation system linkages, address substandard geometrics, 
accommodate future traffic to an acceptable level, and improve overall 
safety. The EIS will evaluate a range of alternatives for the Beltline 
Interchange, adjacent roads, and connections to the local road network. 
The EIS will be prepared in accordance with 23 U.S.C. 139, 23 CFR 771, 
and 40 CFR 1500-1508. Completion of the Draft EIS (DEIS) and Final EIS 
(FEIS) are expected in 2016.
    Public involvement is a critical component of the National 
Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and will occur throughout the 
development of the DEIS and FEIS. All environmental documents will be 
made available for review by federal and state resource agencies and 
the public. Specific efforts to encourage involvement by, and solicit 
comments from, minority and low-income populations in the project study 
area will be made, with public involvement meetings held throughout the 
environmental document process. Public notice will be given as to the 
time and place of public involvement meetings. A public hearing will be 
held after the completion of the DEIS.
    Inquiries about the EIS can be sent to Craig.Pringle@dot.wi.gov. A 
public Web site will be maintained for the EIS to provide information 
about the project and allow for online public comment; visit the I-39/
90 Expansion Project Web site, www.i39-90.wi.gov, under the Resources 
tab and Environmental section. To ensure the full range of issues 
related to the proposed action are

race, color, age, sex, or country of national origin in the 
implementation of this project. It is also Federal policy to identify 
and address any disproportionately high and adverse effects of federal 
projects on the health or environment of minority and low-income 
populations to the greatest extent practicable and permitted by law.
