 UPDATE ON THE STATE ROUTE 710 NORTH STUDY
 
Dear Stakeholder,

During the public comment period that lasted from March 6 – August 5, 2015, Caltrans received thousands of comments on the State Route 710 North Study’s Draft Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (Draft EIR/EIS). Since then, the project team has reviewed and categorized the nearly 2,600 submissions which represent more than 8,000 comments that require a response in the Study’s Final EIR/EIS. Currently, the project team is preparing draft responses to comments and anticipates this effort will take the remainder of 2016 to complete.

Along with finalizing the responses to comments, other major tasks to be accomplished during 2017 include recommending a preferred alternative, demonstrating air quality conformity for the recommended alternative, finalizing the Project Report, completing supporting documents for the Final EIR/EIS and preparing the Final EIR/EIS in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act and the California Environmental Quality Act.

In the meantime, we will continue to engage stakeholders by emailing and posting updates on the study website, utilizing social media channels and sharing updates at meetings/briefings as new information becomes available.

We appreciate your continued interest in this study.

Sincerely,

STATE ROUTE 710 NORTH
PROJECT TEAM
