Draft Environmental Assessment

Nashua - Merrimack - Bedford 13761

The National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) “requires Federal agencies to prepare an environmental document for major Federal actions that affect the quality of the human and natural environment”. For the FEET project, the document under preparation is an Environmental Assessment (EA). An EA is a full disclosure document that details the process through which a transportation project was developed, and includes consideration of a range of reasonable alternatives, analyzes the potential impacts resulting from the alternatives, and demonstrates compliance with other applicable environmental laws and executive orders.

The EA process is completed in the following ordered steps: Agency consultation and scoping, draft EA, public comment period, final EA, and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). The draft EA will be posted on this website and be available for public review and comment.

Check back for further details on the EA in early 2018.
