Environmental Impact Statement Withdrawal: Ontonagon County;
AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.
ACTION: Notice of Intent Withdrawal.
SUMMARY: On February 1, 1996, the Federal Highway Administration issued
a Notice of Intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)
for the proposed replacement of the M-64 bridge over the Ontonagon
River in the Village of Ontonagon, Ontonagon County, Michigan. The M-64
bridge is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. The
proposed project also involves reconstruction of the bridge approach
roadways on either side of the river. The Federal Highway
Administration is issuing this Notice to withdraw its original Notice
of Intent from February 1, 1996.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: During the past several years, several
alternatives have been studied and coordination has taken place with
the public and various interested agencies. This coordination has
resulted in alternatives being developed which will likely not have
significant impacts on the natural or human environment. As a result,
the Federal Highway Administration has determined that an environmental
impact statement is no longer needed. In lieu of an EIS, the Federal
Highway Administration and the Michigan Department of Transportation
are preparing an environmental assessment/programmatic Section 4(f)
evaluation which will be circulated for public and interested agency
review and comments. Should it be determined during this process that
an EIS is needed, one will be prepared following a new Notice of
Issued on: January 5, 2000.

Division Administrator, Lansing, Michigan.
