Issue
ISSUE

The Draft Environmental Document (DED) for the I-710 South Corridor Project was re-circulated for public review on June 21, 2017. The Project alternatives (illustrated in Attachment A) evaluated in the Recirculated Draft Environmental Report/Supplemental Draft Environmental Statement (RDEIR/SDEIS) were revised to reflect community and agency input received during the first circulation of the DED in 2012 and Metro Board Motion 22.1 (2015), which added primarily non-freeway improvements to the Project and several mitigation and policy considerations. The RDEIR/SDEIS was circulated for 90 days and received close to 2,300 comments (188 individual entries). Based on public input and a performance evaluation of the two build Project alternatives (Attachment B), including benefits and financial feasibility, it is the recommendation of staff to proceed with Alternative 5C as the Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) to advance to the Final Environmental Document.
