US 395 North Spokane Corridor - Environmental & Project Benefits

The North Spokane Corridor is being developed under Federal Highway Administration guidelines.  The original environmental documentation for the project was completed in 1997 in the form of a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS).  In 2000 the FEIS was modified and a Final Supplemental Enviromental Statement (FSEIS) was presented for public comment and hearing.  Several changes have occured to the project as defined in the FEIS and FSEIS, these are defined in Environmental Reevaluation documents.  The chapters of these documents are available for reading below:

FEIS - Final Environmental Impact Statement
(April 1997)

FSEIS - Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (September 2000)

Environmental Reevaluation for US 2 Profile Change

North Spokane Freeway Access Point Decision Report-September 1998

Final Environmental Impact Statement

This report documents studies for a proposal of a new freeway to improve transportation safety and mobility through the City of Spokane.  The alternatives considered are (1) no build, (2) no build with Transportation System Management (TSM) and Transportation Demand Management (TDM), (3) mass transit, (4) improvements to existing facilities, and (5-7) build alternatives.   Based on consideration of all of the factors addressed in this EIS and input from agencies and the public, the Market-Green Alternative with North Connection Option and C/D System has been identified as the preferred alternative.

Due to the size of the FEIS (over 900 pages) it has been separated into many PDF files. You can view the table of contents.

Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (FSEIS)

This Final Supplemental EIS has been prepared to document the changes to the proposed action presented in the 1997 North Spokane Freeway Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS), and the impacts resulting from those changes. There are no changes in the termini of the North Spokane Corridor (NSC) project. The Draft Supplemental EIS covers portions of the corridor between the Spokane River and US 395 at Wandermere in which changes have been made since the FEIS. The FSEIS refers to the FEIS where there are no changes in affected environment or impacts.

Due to the size of the FSEIS (over 200 pages) it has been separated into many PDF files. You can view the table of contents.
