To comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), in cooperation with KDOT, is initiating an Environmental Assessment for the complete project (Phases 1 and 2). This meeting will provide the initial findings from the Environmental Assessment.
Phase 1 of the U.S. 54/East Kellogg corridor project is fully funded and final design/construction is anticipated to begin shortly after completion of the NEPA process which is anticipated to be in early 2023. Phase 2 is being included in the Environmental Assessment so that FHWA approval can be obtained, and the project can move forward for development when funding is available.
This is an open house-style meeting, and no formal presentation will be given. Attendees are welcome to come and go at any time during the meeting between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m.
For those who are unable to attend, meeting materials and an online comment form will be provided on the project website from September 13 –September 27 at eastkellogg.ksdotike.org.
