US 79 widening project in Leon County - Notice of availability of finding of no significant impact (FONSI)

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 US Highway (US) 79 widening project, and that the FONSI is available for public review

The proposed project would widen US 79 from west of Interstate Highway (IH) 45 to west of Farm-to-Market Road (FM) 1512 in Leon 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 TxDOT Bryan District Office, 2591 North Earl Rudder Freeway, Bryan, TX 77803, 979-778-2165.

For further information or to request a copy of the FONSI and/or approved final EA, please contact Tom Pickering, environmental coordinator, at 979-778-9601 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 Bob Colwell, Bryan District public information officer, at 979-778-2165 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.
