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. The PWC DOT will also complete additional flood analysis by installing flood gauges in the area to address community concerns.

Initial coordination has begun with the Army Corps of Engineers. PWC DOT will submit permit applications for the Route 28 Bypass at 60% design, which is anticipated to occur in 2024.

If the US Army Corps of Engineers does not approve and release the permit, the engineering team will have to further evaluate and adjust the design to resolve comments and concerns received from the US Army Corps of Engineers.

The traffic analysis is expected to be completed in early 2024. Any additional studies will be considered once the Field Survey and Base Mapping are complete in early 2023. The outcomes from those studies and analyses will be utilized in the design decision-making process. All findings will be published on route28bypass.com and shared in public meetings.
