Background

On November 21, 2014, the FHWA published in the Federal Register notice of the availability of the Tier 1 DEIS at 79 FR 68242. That Federal Register notice listed February 27, 2015, as the end date for the comment period. Due to severe weather conditions throughout the project area, four public hearings were rescheduled. Accordingly, the FHWA and the PANYNJ are extending the public comment period for the Cross Harbor Freight Program Tier 1 DEIS until Friday, March 20, 2015.

The comprehensive public hearing schedule, the DEIS, and list of DEIS repositories are available on the project Web site: www.crossharborstudy.com.

Extended Deadline for Public Comment Period: Comments on the Tier 1 DEIS should be received no later than Friday, March 20, 2015.
