Body

OK clarification - original scope - if a build alternative meeting P&N is selected, enough ROW would be acquired to provide for four through lanes in a constrolled access ROW. However, only two lanes, a Super 2, would be constructed to meet capacity needs for the design year. Sometime after the design year, at a time unknown, it is felt that additional capacity would most likely be required and it would be more cost effective to acquire (and preserve for highway use) forested lands today than residential lands tomorrow, a bit of insightful logic if you will.
Revised scope - project scope is reduced to a smaller footprint to reduce costs, now. 250' ROW to 100' ROW.
ROW to be acquired after NEPA decision. btw, ROW acquisition could be conducted prior to NEPA decision following the regulations at 23 CFR 710.501/503 for early or advance acquisition.
