6-Lane with Collector/Distributor Lanes Alternative
The 6-Lane with Collector/Distributor Lanes alternative (previously called the PEL Recommendation 10-Lane with Downtown C/D) has been renamed to better clarify the scope of the alternative and reduce misconception. This alternative has three through lanes in each direction with two additional lanes serving as decision lanes that feed into Collector/Distributor lanes across the River Bridge in the downtown area. Collector/Distributor lanes are separated from the mainlanes by a barrier. The 8-Lane alternative has four general purpose lanes in each direction.
Project-specific determinations for the 8-Lane General Purpose and 6-Lane with Collector/Distributor Lanes alternatives (previously called the PEL Recommendation 10-Lane with Downtown C/D) and a more detailed analysis of potential impacts will be analyzed through the NEPA process, along with analyzing a no-build alternative. Additional meetings will be held during NEPA, and the public is encouraged to provide input throughout the process.
Schedules are preliminary and are subject to change as project development progresses.
