Environmental Impact Statement: Prince of Wales Island, Alaska

February 22, 1994.
AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Cancellation of Notice of Intent to prepare an environmental 
impact statement. Reference FHWA Notice 6640.19, April 27, 1993.

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

SUMMARY: The FHWA is issuing this notice to inform the public that an 
environmental impact statement (EIS) will not be prepared for a 
proposed road improvement project on Prince of Wales Island in Alaska. 
The scope of the proposed improvements to the North Prince of Wales 
Highway has been significantly reduced. An EIS will not be prepared 
because of the reduced potential for significant environmental impacts 
to result from this project.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
Walter Langlitz, Project Manager, Federal Highway Administration/
Western Federal Lands Highway Division, 610 East Fifth Street, 
Vancouver, Washington 98661, Phone: 206/696-7528.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The new project scope involves 
reconstruction of the section of North Prince of Wales Road between 
Coffman Cove junction (M.P. 68.78) and the Naukati junction (M.P. 
76.75). This project will correct substandard road features such as 
narrow width, poor alignment, poor road surface, and unsafe roadside 
conditions in the project area. The Federal Highway Administration 
(FHWA) is considering two alternatives in addition to a ``no action'' 
alternative. One alternative would widen and realign this section to an 
60 km/h (40 MPH) standard. The other alternative would widen and 
realign the section to a 80 km/h (50 MPH) standards. Both alternatives 
include resurfacing the roadbeds with gravel. This revised proposal is 
based on written comments and the results of public meetings held in 
1993 regarding improvement of roads on Prince of Wales Island. Members 
of the public and agency representatives discussed potential 
alternatives and identified relevant issues at these meetings. Input 
received indicates there is not strong support at this time for new 
road construction on the east side of the island to meet the stated 
need. A Scoping Report is available from FHWA which documents the 
meetings held by FHWA and input received.

Planning and Coordination Engineer, Federal Highway Administration.
