Final Environmental Impact Statement and Record of Decision (FEIS-ROD)

This Final Environmental Impact Statement and Record of Decision, or FEIS-ROD, is the culmination of technical studies and reports, interagency coordination, and community outreach and feedback. The FEIS-ROD documents the purpose and need for the project; presents a discussion of the alternatives and the analysis of them; describes the affected environment, assessment of environmental, transportation, social, and economic impacts; identifies appropriate mitigation measures to offset impacts; and presents a preferred alternative. It also incorporates analysis and feedback from public and agency sources gathered during the various phases of the FEIS development. We encourage you to explore the FEIS/ROD and its very detailed appendices at the links below.

Changes and updates have been made to the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the I-526 Lowcountry Corridor WEST project since the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). Minor changes to grammar, spelling, and punctuation and references to FEIS have been incorporated. Updated information and changes made in response to public and agency comments on the DEIS are highlighted in blue in the FEIS.
