SUMMARY: FHWA is issuing this notice of intent to advise the public of

a noise analysis in accordance with 23 CFR part 772, a Section 4(f)

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the Louisiana 
Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD), intends to adopt 
an approved Final EIS for the I-12 to Bush Highway in St. Tammany 
Parish, Louisiana. The EIS was prepared by the US Army Corps of 
Engineers, New Orleans District, as part of a Section 404 permit 
application number MVN-2005-00037. The NOI for the EIS appeared in the 
FR, Volume 73, Number 224, November 19, 2008. The project calls for the 
construction of a new four-lane highway connecting I-12 to Bush, 
Louisiana, in St. Tammany Parish. The preferred alternative is 
approximately 19.8 miles in length and begins at LA 434, north of the 
existing LA 434 interchange, and traverses in a northeasterly direction 
until encountering an abandoned rail corridor. It then follows the rail 
corridor terminating at the LA 21/LA 41 intersection near Bush, 
Louisiana. The EIS considered the social, environmental, and economic 
impacts of the project. The No-Action alternative and four roadway 
alternatives were evaluated and discussed in the draft and final EIS. 
The FHWA will prepare a noise study in accordance with 23 CFR part 772 
and coordinate the Section 4(f) evaluation for the project in 
accordance with 40 CFR 1505.2. The public will be given an opportunity 
to comment on the proposed action prior to issuance of a ROD by FHWA. 
The public notice will be published in local newspapers and on the 
project Web site at www.i12tobush.com.
    Comments or questions concerning this proposed action and the EIS 
should be directed to the FHWA at the address provided above.
