The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), New Orleans District (CEMVN), Regulatory Branch has received an application (MVN-2005-00037) for a Department of Army permit from the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LADOTD), requesting authorization under provisions of Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, to construct a modern, high-speed, 4-lane arterial highway from the northern terminus of the current modern 4-lane arterial portion of Louisiana Highway 21 in Bush, Louisiana to Interstate 12 in St. Tammany Parish. This project (State Project Number 700-52-0124) is being undertaken by the LADOTD to comply with Louisiana Revised Statute (R.S.) 47:820.2.B(e).
As lead federal agency, the USACE has determined that the proposed project may have a significant environmental impact on the project area and therefore, must prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) as required under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the Council on Environmental Quality's regulations at 40 CFR Parts 1500-1508. The EIS will disclose and analyze all significant environmental impacts of the proposed highway. The EIS will assist the CEMVN in making a permit decision.
