Notice To Rescind a Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental 
Impact Statement: State Route 18 From State Route-64 at Bolivar to 
State Route-100, Hardeman County, Tennessee

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice to Rescind a Notice of Intent to prepare an 
Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).

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

SUMMARY: The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is issuing this 
notice to advise the public that the Notice of Intent published on 
March 7, 2007 to prepare an EIS for the proposed project to improve 
State Route 18 from State Route-64 at Bolivar to State Route-100, 
Hardeman County, Tennessee, is being rescinded.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Theresa Claxton, Planning and 
Program Management Team Leader, Federal Highway Administration--
Tennessee Division Office, 404 BNA Drive, Suite 508, Nashville, TN

Department of

[[Page 19707]]

Transportation (TDOT), is rescinding the notice of intent to prepare an 
EIS for an upgrade to the existing State Route 18 from State Route-64 
at Bolivar to State Route-100, Hardeman County. The proposed project 
was approximately 10 miles in length and had been developed to bypass 
downtown Bolivar.
    TDOT conducted public involvement and agency coordination, 
developed a purpose and need for the project and developed preliminary 
alternatives. In August of 2012, TDOT circulated and requested comments 
on a Preliminary Draft EIS (PDEIS) that was sent to agencies 
participating in Tennessee's Environmental Streamlining Agreement, 
including FHWA. Following the PDEIS, TDOT further considered the cost 
of the project, the project purpose and need and a southern bypass of 
Bolivar, a separate project that had been approved in a 2004 NEPA 
Finding of No Significant Impact. They also considered the adverse 
comments received from the public and resource agencies related to 
purpose and need, environmental impacts and project cost. Upon full 
consideration of the issues identified, FHWA and TDOT determined that 
they would not pursue the State Route 18 (Bolivar Northern Bypass) 
project.
    Comments and questions concerning the proposed action should be 
directed to FHWA at the address provided above.

Executive Order 12372 regarding intergovernmental consultation on 
Federal programs and activities apply to this proposed program.)
