The Impact on My Environment

There are many questions around how the Route 28 Bypass will affect the local environment. This section provides a look into all the materials that you might need as you understand the resources that are available to you.

Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions surrounding the Route 28 Bypass Project.

What is a Feasibility Study?

A feasibility study is an analysis that takes all of a project’s relevant factors into account—including economic, technical, legal, and scheduling considerations—to ascertain the likelihood of completing the project successfully.

My Environment

We are looking at FEMA guidelines and will consider all options to reduce the impacts of flooding as the Route 28 Bypass design moves forward which may include: relocating residents out of the flood zones and performing stream restoration to increase capacity.

PWC DOT will submit permits for the Route 28 Bypass to the US Army Corps of Engineers once substantial design is completed. It is expected that results regarding the permits will be released in late-2022/early-2023. This permit is required to determine impacts to wetlands within the project area.

If the Army Corps of Engineers does not release the permit, the construction of the project along the current location cannot occur and will have to be reevaluated.

Additional studies will be completed once an engineering firm is selected, as part of the Design and Engineering phase of this project. The analysis and findings from those studies will impact decisions made about the Route 28 bypass design. The findings will be published on route28bypass.com and shared in public meetings.
