Detroit River International Crossing Study (DRIC). The back cover of
the FEIS contains a DVD that is not part of the FEIS and should be
disregarded. It has no role in FHWA's NEPA process; and has not and
will not be used in FHWA's decision-making process. This action is
pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, 42
U.S.C. 4321 et seq., as amended and the Council on Environmental
Quality Regulations (40 CFR parts 1500-1508).

    FHWA does not consider the material on the DVD to be part of the
approved FEIS. FHWA has directed the Michigan Department of
Transportation (MDOT) to remove it from all remaining copies of the
FEIS that have not been distributed and to remove it from copies that
are currently provided at the repositories. FHWA and MDOT will also
inform all FEIS document holders that the DVD is not part of the FEIS.
