Environmental Impact Statement; Opportunity Corridor, City of 
Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, OH

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 will be prepared for transportation 
improvements proposed in Cuyahoga County, Ohio.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Laura S. Leffler, Division 
Administrator, Federal Highway Administration, 200 North High Street, 
Room 328, Columbus, Ohio 43215, Telephone: (614) 280-6896.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), 
in cooperation with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), will 
prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on a proposal to 
construct new roadways on new alignments between Interstate 490 and the 
University Circle area of Cleveland, Ohio. The study area extends from 
Interstate 77/Interstate 490 in the west to East 105th Street and 
Chester Avenue (U.S. 322) in the east and is located entirely in the 
City of Cleveland, Ohio. The study area runs generally parallel to the 
existing railroad transportation corridor containing Greater Cleveland 
Regional Transit Authority's (GCRTA) Red Line and freight tracks owned 
and operated by Norfolk Southern Corporation (NS) and CSX Corporation 
(CSX).
    The purpose of the transportation improvement is to create the 
transportation infrastructure to improve mobility and access in 
southeast Cleveland and support the revival and redevelopment of large 
tracts of vacant industrial and residential land within an area bounded 
by Cedar Avenue on the north, east 55th Street on the West, Woodhill 
Road/East 93rd Street on the east and Union Avenue on the south. 
Actions under consideration include (1) six various alternatives to 
construct a boulevard type roadway including a multi-lane urban 
arterial with curbs, an elevated landscape median, multi-modal 
facilities, landscaping and lighting, and (2) taking no action. The 
current six various alternatives have been born out of a previous 
planning study called the University Circle Access Boulevard. The 
project development process including the refinement of Conceptual 
Alternatives and the development of Feasible Alternatives will be 
included in the Draft EIS.
    Letters describing the proposed action and soliciting comments will 
be sent to appropriate Federal, State and local agencies and to private 
organizations and citizens who have previously expressed or are known 
to have interest in this proposal. A series of public meetings and 
hearings will be held in the project area. Public notice will be given 
of the exact time and place of the meetings and the hearing to be held 
for the project. The Draft EIS will be available for public and agency 
review and comment prior to the Public Hearing.
    To ensure that the full range of issues related to this proposed 
action are addressed and all significant issues identified, comments, 
and suggestions are invited from all interested parties. Comments or 
questions concerning this proposed action or the EIS should be directed 
to the FHWA at the address provided above.
