The FHWA, in cooperation with the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), issued a notice of intent to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) on November 26, 2007 (72 FR 67779). The project proposal was to address potential increases in traffic volumes, operational issues, and State economic initiatives of the existing 70-mile roadway facility south of Pana to east of Irvington, Illinois.
The FHWA is rescinding the notice of intent because IDOT has no plans to advance the project and no further activities will occur in its development.
Comments or questions concerning this notice should be directed to FHWA or the Illinois Department of Transportation at the addresses provided above.
