The FHWA, in cooperation with the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), will prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) on a proposal to construct a new interchange on I-15 at milepost 13 in Washington City, Utah.

The construction of a new interchange is considered necessary to provide access to I-15, which will accommodate the projected traffic demand and development planned for the area. Alternatives under consideration include (1) taking no action; (2) Transportation System Management (TSM), activities which maximize the efficiency of the present system; (3) constructing a new interchange on I-15 at milepost 13.

Letters describing the proposed action and soliciting comments will be 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 this proposal. A public scoping meeting and a public hearing will be held. Notice will be given of the time and place of the meetings and hearing. The draft EIS will be available for public and agency review and comment prior to the public hearing.

To ensure that the full range of issues related to this proposed action 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.
