Notice To Rescind a Notice of Intent and Draft Environmental 
Impact Statement: I-10 Corridor Improvement Study; Maricopa County, AZ

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice to rescind a Notice of Intent and Draft Environmental 
Impact Statement.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FHWA is issuing this notice to advise the public that we 
are rescinding the Notice of Intent (NOI) and Draft Environmental 
Impact Statement (EIS) for proposed freeway improvements along 
Interstate 10 (I-10) from State Route (SR) 51 to the Santan Freeway 
within Maricopa County, Arizona. A NOI to prepare an EIS for the I-10 
Corridor Improvement Study was published in the Federal Register on 
February 4, 2002, with a subsequent correction to the project limits 
published in the Federal Register on May 14, 2002.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Alan Hansen, Major Projects 
Manager, Federal Highway Administration, 4000 North Central Avenue, 
Suite 1500, Phoenix, AZ 85012-3500, Telephone: (602) 382-8964, Email: 
alan.hansen@dot.gov.
    The FHWA Arizona Division Office's normal business hours are 8 a.m. 
to 5 p.m. (Mountain Standard Time).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On February 4, 2002, the FHWA, in 
cooperation with the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), 
issued an NOI to prepare an EIS for proposed freeway improvements along 
I-10 from SR 51 to the Santan Freeway in Maricopa County, Arizona. The 
I-10 Corridor is in or adjacent to the cities of Phoenix, Tempe, and 
Chandler, as well as the Town of Guadalupe.
    In May 2002, the FWHA issued a revised NOI to correct the project 
limits. The study area limits for the EIS consisted of approximately 15 
miles of I-10 and segments of I-17, SR 143, and US Highway (US) 60. The 
study area primarily extended south along I-10 from the I-10/SR51/
SR202L System

Interchange to the I-10/SR202L Santan Freeway System Interchange. The 
study area also included the segment of I-17 from the I-10/I-17 System 
Interchange west to 9th Avenue, SR 143 from Broadway Road north to the 
south bank of the Salt River, and US 60 from the I-10/US60 System 
Interchange east to Hardy Drive.
    A No-Build Alternative and Build Alternative were being considered 
in the EIS for the Design Year 2030. The No-Build Alternative served as 
the baseline for the analysis conducted under the National 
Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The proposed Build Alternative 
involved a combination of freeway widening and the construction of 
separate express and local lanes along I-10.
    The construction of separate express and local lanes on I-10 
between Buckeye and Baseline Roads is included in the Regional 
Transportation Plan (RTP) and Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) 
adopted by the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) Regional 
Council. However, MAG is considering modifications to some of the 
transportation improvements that are presently programmed in the RTP 
and TIP, including the express and local lanes on I-10 between Buckeye 
and Baseline Roads. As such, the preparation of the EIS for the I-10 
Corridor Improvement Study is being terminated. Any future 
transportation improvements in the I-10 Corridor will be determined 
through the funding and project reprioritization by MAG, and any future 
actions will progress under a separate environmental review process, in 
accordance with all applicable laws and regulations.
