This final Preliminary Alternatives Screening Report (PASR) has been updated from the draft report prepared in October 2014. This final version has been prepared in consideration of input received from the public at the Public Open House on October 29, 2014, as well as input received from Federal and state regulatory agencies.
The Preliminary Alternatives Screening Report documents the preliminary alternatives phase of the project and is an important step for developing the project alternatives that will be evaluated in an Alternatives Report and the Environmental Impact Statement. The PASR presents the process by which an initial range of 16 preliminary alternatives were identified, including an alternative suggested by the public at the October 29, 2014 open house. The alternatives were evaluated using screening criteria and narrowed to four alternatives to be carried forward for further design development and environmental evaluation.
Comments on the project alternatives will continue to be accepted. Please see the "Contact Us" tab at the top of this page for ways to submit comments and/or join the project mailing list.
