Document Description
Note: EA/FONSI Review per lead The Project would include expansion of the current footprint at the I-8 and Hwy 80 checkpoints and would include installation of lights, shade canopies, and other minor improvements. The expansion at I-8 would consist of construction of two new exit lanes from I-8 to the inspection area, construction of retaining walls and guard rails at the edge of the expansion area, and other improvements. Improvements at the Highway 80 checkpoint would involve ground disturbance and vegetation clearing to the current easement boundary, which is approximately 10 to 12 feet wide by 1,000 feet long. The paved area would be expanded to accommodate one access lane to the inspection stations off of the Highway 80 road surface and other improvements.
