NEXT STEPS

A Categorical Exclusion (CE) documented the impacts of the project and addressed the concerns that were expressed by the public and others during the planning process.  The project planning study concluded in the Summer of 2019 with the publication of the CE.  More detailed traffic noise analysis for potential noise abatement areas will occur during final design.
