On February 12, 2019, FTA published a NOI to prepare an EIS in coordination with Sound Transit for the WSBLE Project in the Federal Register (84 FR 3541). The public scoping period on the NOI was originally scheduled to end on March 18, 2019. FTA received requests for additional time to provide comments. In an effort to balance the need to move forward on the EIS process in an efficient manner and the need to encourage thorough public participation in this scoping process, FTA will extend the public comment period to April 2, 2019. This brings the public scoping period to a total of 46 days. Other information contained in the NOI published in the February 12, 2019 Federal Register has not been changed.
