Federal Highway Administration


Environmental Impact Statement: Hampton and Norfolk, VA

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of intent.


SUMMARY: The FHWA is issuing this notice to advise the public that an 
environmental impact statement will be prepared to investigate 
transportation alternatives for improving the crossing of Hampton Roads 
in southeastern Virginia.

Mr. Allen Masuda, District Engineer, Federal Highway Administration, 
P.O. Box 10045, Richmond, Virginia 23240-0045, Telephone: (804) 771-

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the Virginia 
Department of Transportation, will prepare an environmental impact 
statement (EIS) for various alternatives developed to alleviate 
congestion and improve access and mobility across Hampton Roads. A 
major metropolitan transportation investment analysis will be completed 
in accordance with 23 CFR part 450, subpart C.

    Possible alternatives to be considered will likely include multi-
modal transportation alternatives, congestion pricing methods, 
intelligent vehicle highway system features, the improvement of 
existing facilities, and new construction. The no-build alternative 
will be considered throughout the study.
    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 an interest in this study. A Hampton Roads Crossing Study 
Coordinating Committee has been formed to assist and guide the study. 
Regularly scheduled meetings with Federal and State agencies will occur 
during the study. A series of public meetings will be held within the 
Hampton Roads region beginning in the summer of 1994. Additional public 
outreach will occur through the issuance of project newsletters and the 
establishment of a study hotline which can be called at no cost within 
the Commonwealth of Virginia. The toll-free hotline number is 1(800) 
276-HRCS. The draft EIS will be available for public and agency review 
and comment prior to a formal public hearing. The scoping process has 
begun through the Hampton Roads Crossing Study Coordinating Committee.
    To ensure that the full range of issues related to this project are 
addressed and all significant issues identified, comments, and 
suggestions are invited from all interested parties. Comments or 
questions concerning this proposed action and the EIS should be 
directed to the FHWA at the address provided above.

(Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance Program Number 20.205, 
Highway Planning and Construction. The regulations implementing 
Executive Order 12372 regarding intergovernmental consultation on 
Federal programs and activities apply to this proposed action.)

    Issued on: May 17, 1994.
James M. Tumlin,
Division Administrator, Richmond, Virginia.
