KAYSVILLE – The West Davis Corridor study team has extended the public comment period on the proposed highway for a second time, until Friday, Sept. 6.
In an online update, the team said it continues to receive input on the draft Environmental Impact Statement.
“To ensure all stakeholders have ample opportunity to review the draft EIS, UDOT (the Utah Department of Transportation) and FHWA (Federal Highway Administration) have extended the public comment period,” the update said. “Between now and the deadline, the public is encouraged to review the contents of the draft EIS and provide their comments to the study team.”
The draft statement, which recommends that the freeway take a path through Farmington, is available in electronic form on the study website, udot.utah.gov/westdavis. A hard copy is available at city buildings and libraries within the study area.
Comments may be submitted online, through email at email@example.com, or by mail, West Davis Corridor EIS team, 466 N. 900 West, Kaysville, 84037.
Following the public comment period, the study team will evaluate and respond to every comment in the final environmental impact statement document, which will be prepared throughout the remainder of the year. A final decision is expected in spring of 2014.
