Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)

Prior to preparing the EIS document, two other documents were prepared as part of the EIS process. Those include a Coordination Plan (841 kb PDF) and an Impact Analysis Methodology (577 kb PDF). The Coordination Plan identifies how project information will be communicated and how input from agencies and the public will be solicited and considered during the EIS process. The Impact Analysis Methodology explains how the project's potential impacts will be evaluated.

The Draft EIS was approved on October 19, 2012. The Draft EIS describes the need for the project, the alternatives considered, and the impacts of those alternatives. It was approved by the Federal Highway Administration and the Wisconsin DOT, to comply with the National Environmental Policy Act and the Wisconsin Environmental Policy Act. Comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted if they are e-mailed or postmarked by December 10, 2012. They should be e-mailed to westbypass@waukeshacounty.gov or mailed to:

Gary Evans
Waukesha County Dept. of Public Works

This Draft EIS has been divided into 3 parts so you won't have to download the complete file at one time. Please download all 3 documents as they have bookmarks linked to each section.
