The FHWA, in cooperation with the Alabama Department of Transportation, is rescinding the NOI to prepare an EIS for Federal-aid project HPP-1602(507). The proposed project was to construct a multi-lane, limited access roadway from the Florida state line at U.S. 231 to the City of Dothan and connecting to U.S. 231 north of the City. The study area included Dale, Houston and Geneva Counties.
The NOI for the project was published in the Federal Register on November 18, 2002. A draft EIS was released in November 2007. The FHWA has determined, in conjunction with ALDOT, the NOI for the project shall be rescinded due to difficulties coordinating termini, design decisions and environmental efforts with the Florida Department of Transportation. ALDOT decided not to advance this project.
Any future Federal-aid actions within this corridor will comply with environmental review requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA, 42 U.S.C. 4321, et seq.), FHWA environmental regulations (23 CFR 771) and related authorities, as appropriate.
