Environmental Impact Statement: McDonough County, IL

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of intent.

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

SUMMARY: The FHWA is issuing this notice to advise the public that an 
Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) will be prepared for a proposed 
project in McDonough County, Illinois. The proposed project will 
evaluate bypass alternates in the area of Macomb, Illinois. Bypass 
alternates will consider possible connections of existing U.S. Route 
67, U.S. Route 136, and proposed Illinois Route 336. The study area 
will encompass an area three miles south, five miles north, eight miles 
west, and five miles east of Macomb.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
Mr. James C. Partlow, Design Operations Engineer, Federal Highway 
Administration, Illinois Division, 3250 Executive Park Drive, 
Springfield, Illinois 62703, Telephone: (217) 492-4622 Mr. Dale E. 
Risinger, District Engineer, Illinois Department of Transportation 
(IDOT), 401 Main Street, Peoria, Illinois 61602, Telephone: (309) 671-
3333.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the Illinois 
Department of Transportation, will prepare an Environmental Impact 
Statement on a proposal to improve traffic circulation around Macomb in 
McDonough County, Illinois. The proposed action involves the 
construction of a four-lane, access-controlled, divided highway. The 
length will be dependent on the results of the study and a chosen 
bypass location. The area being studied will encompass Macomb, Illinois 
for three miles to the south, five miles to the north, eight miles to 
the west, and five miles to the east.
    The proposed action will support economic development in west-
central Illinois by providing improved traffic circulation, safer and 
more efficient access to the urban area, a divided highway design for 
high operating speeds and system continuity from Quincy to Macomb. 
Primary environmental resources that may be impacted are local property 
tax income, agricultural land, and wetlands.
    Alternatives under consideration include no action and a new four-
lane, fully access-controlled facility on new alignment. Interchanges 
will be provided at major high-volume roadways. Several alignment 
alternatives will be evaluated for the proposed project to best serve 
traffic circulation to and around Macomb.
    The scoping process undertaken as part of this proposed project 
will include distribution of a scoping information packet, coordination 
with appropriate Federal, State, and local agencies, and review 
sessions as needed. A formal scoping meeting is not planned. Further 
details of the proposed project and a scoping information packet may be 
obtained from one of the contact persons listed above.
    To ensure that the full range of issues related to the proposed 
action are addressed and all significant issues identified, a 
comprehensive public involvement program will be undertaken. A public 
meeting concerning the proposed action will be held in the study area 
prior to the public hearing. Public notice will be given of the time 
and place of the meeting and hearing. The Draft EIS will be available 
for public agency review and comment and suggestions are invited from 
all interested parties. Comments or questions concerning this proposed 
action and the EIS should be directed to the FHWA or IDOT contact 
persons.
