Environmental Studies are Complete

The Mercer Corridor Project meets all applicable local, state and federal environmental review requirements.

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) on May 12, 2009. The finding is based on the evaluation of the Environmental Assessment (EA) as issued by SDOT, FHWA and the WA State Department of Transportation on December 30, 2008, and on public and agency input during the public comment period from December 30, 2008 through February 13, 2009. The FONSI and the Environmental Assessment can be viewed and downloaded here. This completes the NEPA process for this project.

A State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) Mitigated Declaration of Non-Significance (MDNS) was issued on January 29, 2009, with a comment period also ending on February 13, 2009. SEPA is now complete on the project.
