McDOT Embraces Environmental Destruction and Societal Displacement

Dear Midcounty Corridor Study Community:
This email is to notify you and your community of the latest milestone for the Midcounty Corridor Study.  Available on our website, for your review, is the May 2013 DRAFT Environmental Effects Report (EER). 

The subject report has been submitted to US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)/Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) for their review.  The May 2013 DRAFT EER is part of a permit application requirement. It documents the results of the detailed study for each retained alternative.   It will also be the subject of discussion for the pending USACE/MDE Joint Public Hearing, anticipated Summer 2013. In the coming weeks, a Newsletter/Public Notice will be mailed with the details of the upcoming Joint Public Hearing.
