End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information


The FHWA in cooperation with the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), published a NOII on July 5, 2006 to prepare an EIS for a proposed combined highway and transit project along 1-285 from I75 in Cobb County to 1-85 in DeKalb County, a length of approximately 17 miles. FHWA hereby advises the public of the rescission of this NOI. This change occurred because part of the project corridor, the interchange of 1-285 and GA 400, advanced as an independent project with its own purpose and need. Additionally, GDOT's Major Mobility Investment Program refocused the purpose and need for improvements along 1-285. FHWA and GDOT anticipate the issuance of a new NOI for the proposed construction of express lanes along the project corridor.

Any future Federal-aided action within this corridor will comply with the environmental review requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), FHWA implementing environmental regulations (23 CFR part 771) and related authorities, as appropriate. Comments and questions concerning this action should be directed to FHWA at the address provided above.
