End Date: 2/19/2014End Time: 8:00 PM
Entry Description
The Illinois and Indiana Departments of Transportation (IDOT and INDOT) are holding public hearings on the Illiana Corridor Project Tier Two Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS), which is evaluating transportation improvements in Will County, Illinois and Lake County, Indiana.

The Tier Two Draft EIS is a compilation of stakeholder outreach and comprehensive information about the project’s purpose and need, proposed plans and alternatives, and potential effects on environmental resources such as wetlands, wildlife, cultural resources and noise, as well as potential effects on future traffi c operations caused by the proposed alternatives as well as the “no-build” alternative. After extensive data analysis and evaluation, the Tier Two Draft EIS was made available for public review and comment on January 24, 2014 at www.IllianaCorridor.org, as well as local libraries located within the study area and DOT offi ces. A complete listing of these locations can be found on the project website. Comments on the Tier Two Draft EIS will be accepted through March 10, 2014.

The public hearings will be an open house format, and interested persons may attend anytime between 5:00 and 8:00 p.m. There will be a continuous presentation, and the public is encouraged to comment on the Draft EIS, alternatives under consideration, preliminary road closure plan, social, economic, and environmental impacts and proposed mitigation strategies. Land Acquisition specialists will also be available to answer questions about right-of-way acquisition and residence or business relocation that may be required as part of the project. Attendees are encouraged to provide oral or written testimony to court reporters to be included in the public record and speak with IDOT, INDOT and study team representatives on a one-on-one basis. A public forum will be held at 6:00 p.m. each day where the public is invited to make 2-minute statements to a court reporter and to the public.

The Public Hearings will be held:

The final Preferred Alternative will be documented in the Final EIS and Record of Decision for the project, anticipated to be released in late Spring 2014.
