WSF expects to complete the first phase of this project by late 2022. The Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) process is a more collaborative way of approaching transportation decision-making and allows us to consider environmental, community and economic goals earlier in the process.
During this phase, the project team will use input from the community and advisory groups to:
- Refine the range of alternatives during Level 2 analysis before advancing to the National Environmental Policy Act environmental review process
- Continue to engage three advisory groups and conduct robust community engagement before completing the PEL study report by late 2022.
