project area, plus turn lanes. New ramps will maintain the connections 
with I-195, Broadway Extension, Central Street, and Milliken Boulevard.

between the waterfront and Route 79. Sidewalk and bicycle 
accommodations will be provided and improved.
    The actions by the Federal agencies and the laws under which the 
actions were taken are described in the Environmental Assessment (EA),
