The Utah Department of Transportation, the Federal Highway Administration and Payson City are preparing an Environmental Impact Statement that evaluates the interchange at Payson’s Main Street (SR-115) and I-15. This study is analyzing transportation conditions and will recommend potential solutions to meet current and future needs.
The project team is currently completing the environmental analysis for the Draft EIS including addressing comments received from UDOT and FWHA. This analysis will take longer than originally scheduled to ensure that all alternatives are fully evaluated in detail for their environmental, social, and economic effects.
It is now anticipated that the Draft EIS will be published in the spring of 2017. A Draft EIS public hearing, which will have an open house format, is also anticipated to occur in the spring of 2017 along with a minimum 45-day comment period. Work on the EIS begin in late 2014.
The final EIS is anticipated to be published in late 2017.
Additional project information, including details of the public hearing once they become available, can be found on the project’s website at udot.utah.gov/go/ paysoneis.
