Agency & Public Involvement
Extensive public and agency input was used to shape the Improved Partial Cloverleaf Action Alternative during the Environmental Assessment phase (which was completed with the approved Finding of No Significant Impact in February 2013). Public and stakeholder coordination continues to occur during this design phase. Project notices have been sent to inform individuals on the project mailing list and media contacts at key project milestones, and meetings have been and continue to be held with affected stakeholders.
