    Background: The previous Alternatives Analysis (AA)/DEIS for the 
proposed improvements on the I-75 and I-575 corridors was published in 
May 2007 and three public hearings were held. The proposed alternatives 
for the DEIS included truck only lanes and a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) 
system with five BRT Stations. Comments from the public, agencies, 
local businesses and the trucking industry indicated the desire for an 
approach that does not include truck only lanes or a BRT system and 
focuses on a more cost effective solution with a smaller footprint and 
fewer impacts. This SDEIS provides a detailed evaluation of such an 
approach. The project corridor lies within Cobb and Cherokee Counties, 
Georgia. This SDEIS includes a re-examination of the purpose and need, 
alternatives under consideration, travel demand, affected environment, 
environmental consequences, and mitigation measures as a result of the 
improvements under consideration. One Build alternative and the No-
Build alternative were considered for improvements to the I-75 and I-
575 corridors. The FHWA was the lead agency for the preparation of the 
SDEIS. The FHWA and GDOT invite interested individuals, organizations 
and Federal, State, and local agencies to comment on the evaluated 
alternatives and associated social, economic, or environmental impacts 
related to the alternatives.

Division Administrator, Federal Highway Administration, Atlanta,
