Federal Highway Administration Finding of No Significant Impact for the Capacity Improvement of U.S. 20 from the Peosta Interchange to Northwest Arterial in Dubuque County, Iowa

The proposed action of the Capacity Improvement of U.S. 20 from the Peosta Interchange to Northwest arterial in Dubuque County, Iowa, consists of the development of a freeway facility transitioning to a signalized arterial. Access control to U.S. 20 will be provided by interchanges at strategic locations. Frontage, backage, and access roads will be provided for property access. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has determined that this project would not have any significant impact on the human and natural environment. The following resources were evaluated: displacements and relocations; environmental justice; noise; public services/public facilities; land use; farmland; visual resources; bicycle and pedestrian facilities; air quality; water resources; wetlands and other waters of the U.S.; floodplains; biological resources; historic, archaeological, and recreational areas; and hazardous waste sites. The finding is based on this Environmental Assessment. The assessment provides sufficient evidence and analysis for determining that an Environmental Impact Statement is not required.
