Rescinding a Notice of Intent To
Prepare an Environmental Impact
Statement for the I–71/I–75 Brent
Spence Bridge Corridor Improvements
Project, Hamilton County, OH and
Kenton County, KY
AGENCY
: Federal Highway
Administration (FHWA), Department of
Transportation (DOT).
ACTION
: Notice to rescind a notice of
intent to prepare an environmental
impact statement.
SUMMARY
: The FHWA, in cooperation
with the Ohio Department of
Transportation (ODOT), is issuing this
Notice to advise the public that we are
rescinding the July 20, 2006 Notice of
Intent (NOI) to Prepare an
Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)
for the I–71/I–75 Brent Spence Bridge
corridor improvements project, located
in Hamilton County, Ohio and Kenton
County, Kentucky. We are rescinding
the NOI because the project was down
scoped to an Environmental Assessment
(EA) in 2010 and a Finding of No
Significant Impact (FONSI) was issued
in 2012.

Background
The FHWA, in cooperation with the
ODOT, previously intended to prepare
an EIS for proposed improvements to
I–71/I–75 and connecting routes in the
vicinity of the existing Brent Spence
Bridge Ohio River crossing and the
Cities of Cincinnati, OH and Covington,
KY. The NOI, which was published in
the Federal Register on July 20, 2006
(71 FR 41310), indicated that the
purpose and need of the project was to
improve traffic flow and level of service,
improve safety, correct geometric
deficiencies, and maintain links in key
mobility, trade, and national defense
transportation corridors.
As stated in the 2006 NOI,
alternatives under consideration
included: (1) Taking no action; (2)
rehabilitation/upgrading of the existing
infrastructure combined with
construction of new facilities on new
alignment; (3) replacement
infrastructure on new alignment; and,
(4) other alternatives that may be
developed during the National
Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)
process. During the NEPA process, the
conceptual alternatives were narrowed
to feasible alternatives that essentially
stayed on the I–71/75 mainline,
reducing the potential impacts from the
project. Due to this, ODOT asked that
the project be down scoped to an EA on
December 11, 2009, which FHWA
agreed to on March 11, 2010. An EA was
prepared and a FONSI was approved on
August 9, 2012. However, the NOI was
not rescinded at that time. FHWA is
rescinding the NOI at this time. Should
a need to prepare an EIS arise in the
future, then another NOI would be
issued at that time.

A. Program Description
The American Rescue Plan Act of
2021 (Pub. L. 117–2, March 11, 2021)
provides funds to eligible applicants for
the planning of public transportation
associated with the restoration of transit
service as the coronavirus disease 2019
(COVID–19) pandemic subsides. This
funding opportunity is being announced
under Federal Assistance Listing
Number 20.505.
FTA will competitively award grants
to undertake transit route planning
activities that are designed to (i)
increase ridership and reduce travel
times, while maintaining or expanding
the total level of vehicle revenue miles
of service provided in the planning
period; or (ii) make service adjustments
to increase the quality or frequency of
service provided to low-income riders
and disadvantaged neighborhoods or
communities. Route Planning
Restoration Program grant projects may
be in partnership with other local
governmental entities, non-profits,
social service organizations, or housing
agencies, among others to identify
barriers to opportunity for low-income
riders and disadvantaged neighborhoods
and communities that are dependent on
transit.
This program supports FTA’s strategic
goals and objectives through timely and
efficient investment in public
transportation. This program supports
the President’s plan to mobilize
American ingenuity to build a modern
infrastructure and an equitable future.
By planning for the restoration of transit
service that increases access for
environmental justice populations,
utilizes equity-focused community
outreach and public engagement of
underserved communities, and adopts
equity-focused policies, this NOFO
advances the goals of Executive Order
13985: Advancing Racial Equity and
Support for Underserved Communities
Through the Federal Government.
Additionally, intelligent route planning
and transit service restoration can help
reduce greenhouse gas emissions, in
support of Executive Order 13990:
Protecting Public Health and the
Environment and Restoring Science to
Tackle Climate Crisis; and Executive
