Notice of availability of finding of no significant Impact (FONSI) - FM 70/SH 286 project

Purpose: This notice advises the public that the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has issued a finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for the proposed FM 70/SH 286 Passing Lanes and that the FONSI is available for public review.

The proposed project would construct passing lanes and widen shoulders on Farm to Market (FM) 70 from State Highway (SH) 286 to U.S. Highway (US) 77, and on SH 286 from south of FM 2444 to FM 70 in Nueces County, Texas.

The FONSI and approved final environmental assessment (EA) are on file and available for inspection Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the Corpus Christi District Office at 1701 S. Padre Island Drive, Corpus Christi, Texas 78416, by phone at (361) 808-2300.

For further information or to request a copy of the FONSI and/or approved final EA, please contact Kimberly Amy, District Environmental Coordinator, at (361) 808-2509 or by email.

Accessibility: The FONSI and EA are written in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to review the FONSI or EA, please contact Rickey Dailey, TxDOT Public Information Office, at (361) 808-2544 no later than 4 p.m. CT, at least three business days before the date on which you would like to review the FONSI or EA. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
