The draft environmental impact statement (EIS) evaluates the potential human and environmental impacts of the proposed project and possible mitigation measures including route alternatives. The EIS is issued in draft form so that it may be improved by public comment. A final EIS will be developed based on comments received during the comment period on the draft EIS.
