This study will consider those engineering services required for location/design studies including consideration of all social, economic, environmental effects, and mitigation as required by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and/or the PD&E\ETDM Guidelines, along with the required environmental documents, engineering, reports, preliminary plans and public involvement.
All alternatives will be subjected to a comprehensive evaluation to determine the best viable option. Engineering, environmental, socioeconomic factors and costs will be considered in arriving at a preferred alternative. The approach to this project will be to thoroughly assess the safety, mobility and community needs of the corridor, develop alternatives to address those needs, and evaluate them according to regulatory agency requirements, and community values. As part of this study and of the alternative selection process, a comprehensive public involvement program will be conducted.
