On December 5, 2008, FHWA discovered the DRIC FEIS, which had been distributed to the public, included a DVD in the back cover of the document. This DVD was not presented to FHWA as part of the document it approved and signed on November 21, 2008.
FHWA does not consider the material on the DVD to be part of the approved FEIS. FHWA has directed the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) to remove it from all remaining copies of the FEIS that have not been distributed and to remove it from copies that are currently provided at the repositories. FHWA and MDOT will also inform all FEIS document holders that the DVD is not part of the FEIS.Start Signature
