Entry Description
The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) will hold a public hearing regarding the recently released Environmental Assessment (EA) for the U.S. 50 North Vernon Bypass – East Project. The public hearing will be held on December 18, 2013 in the GT Room of Jennings County High School located at 800 West Walnut Street in North Vernon. Doors will open to the public at 5:00 p.m. and the community is encouraged to visit with project officials in the Library (adjacent to the GT Room), view project displays and ask questions of the project team. The formal presentation will begin at 6:00 p.m. followed by a public comment session. The formal presentation and comment session will extend until 8:00 p.m. During the public comment session, interested persons will be afforded an opportunity to express comments, concerns and input regarding the project. The U.S. 50 North Vernon Bypass – East Project EA is now available for public review and inspection. Comments on the EA are being solicited by INDOT. The purpose of the public hearing is to offer all interested persons an opportunity to comment on current design plans and the Section 106 finding of “adverse impact”.

Since the last public information meeting held in September 2012, the EA for the U.S. 50 North Vernon Bypass – East Project has been completed. This document highlights changes to the alternatives since the September meeting and includes an analysis of the alternatives. The EA identifies the Preferred Alternative.

This is also the final opportunity to comment on the “adverse effect” finding for this project. Per the National Historic Preservation Act, the views of the public are being sought regarding the effect of the proposed project on historic properties within the area of potential effect (per 36CFR800.2(d), 800.3(e) and 800.6(a)(4)). Pursuant to 36CFR800.6(a)(4), the documentation specified in 36CFR800.11(e) are available for inspection (see address below). The documentation serves as the basis for the “adverse effect” finding. The views of the public on effects of the undertaking are being sought. All comments shall be submitted in writing (see address below) by January 3, 2014.

In addition to offering a public comment session, an area will be provided with comment forms and recording devices to capture public comments for those wishing to express comments outside of the public comment session. All public comments will be entered into the official public record and a hearings transcript will be prepared following the public hearing. INDOT is soliciting comments on the U.S. 50 North Vernon Bypass – East Project EA and encourages the community to attend and participate. The official comment period for the EA begins on December 3, 2013 and will end on January 3, 2014. INDOT respectfully requests that comments be submitted or postmarked by that time. Comments on the EA may be sent to: U.S. 50 North Vernon Bypass – East Project, c/o Parsons, 101 West Ohio Street, Suite 2121, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204.
