Did the project get scaled back from an expected 4-lane improvement to a "Super 2-lane" because it now has been determined that the 2-lane adequately accommodates future traffic?  If so, I think you most definitely need to step back and review your Purpose and Need statement and decide if the P&N for the project has changed.  For example, did you eliminate OTHER 2-lane alternatives from consideration for traffic reasons, but now they could be viable alternatives?  If so, those should have probably been covered in the EIS.
