In October 2005, WSDOT and Sound Transit published an Environmental Assessment for the I-5 - South Everett Freeway Station Project. The Environmental Assessment contains the results of our studies on how this project may affect the environment.
The Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Transit Administration analyzed our Environmental Assessment and in March 2006 issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for this project. The FONSI presents the reasons why building this project will not have a significant effect on the environment and therefore does not require that we prepare an Environmental Impact Statement.
We published a Notice of Availability (pdf 16 kb) for the FONSI in April 2006, and below you can download the FONSI in Adobe Acrobat portable document format (.pdf) You can download a free copy of Adobe Reader at the Adobe Web site.
