Proposed permit modification to the I-66 Main Corridor Improvements Project that was authorized by an individual permit March 29. The revision is to account for changes to unavoidable impacts to waters of the U.S. resulting from project design and construction implementation plan modifications. The project will extend the I-66 corridor about 22.5 miles from the interchange of U.S. Route 29 (Lee Highway) in Gainesville, Prince William County, to the I-495 interchange in Fairfax County. The modification would increase the total unavoidable permanent impacts to 5.182 acres of nontidal wetlands and 5,759 linear feet of streams. To compensate for the additional unavoidable impacts to waters of the U.S., the permittee proposes to purchase credits from approved stream and wetland mitigation banks. The public comment period ends March 19.
