Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
The FHWA, in cooperation with the Florida Department of Transportation will prepare a SDEIS to improve Branan Field/Chaffee Road in Duval County. The proposed reconstruction would involve extending and realigning Branan Field/Chaffee Road from 103rd Street to Interstate 10, and the construction of a new interchange at I-10. The study corridor is 6.1 km (3.8 miles) long. The proposed improvements are considered necessary to provide for projected traffic demands.
Alternatives under consideration include: (1) taking no action; and (2) a new four lane alignment between 103rd Street and I-10 located west of Chaffee
Coordination with appropriate Federal, State, and local agencies, and private organizations and citizens who have expressed interest in this proposal has been undertaken and will continue. A series of public meetings have been held and additional meetings are planned for the future in Duval County. In addition, a public hearing will be held. Public notice will be given of the time and place of the meetings and hearing. The Draft SEIS will be made available for public and agency review and comment. An interagency coordination meeting was held June 29, 2000. There are no plans to holding a formal scoping meeting.
To ensure that the full range of issues related to the proposed action are addressed and all significant issues identified, comments, and suggestions are invited from all interested parties. Comments or questions concerning this proposed action and the DSEIS should be directed to the FHWA at the above address.
