The Utah Department of Transportation announces the release of the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS), and the official Record of Decision (ROD) for proposed improvements to State Route 30 between SR 252 (1000 West) in Logan and SR 23 in Petersboro.

The ROD constitutes UDOT's approval of the Highway Action Alternative and the Separate Pedestrian and Bike Path Alternative (Selected Alternatives) as described in the SR 30 FEIS and Section 4 (f) Evaluation (Final EIS). UDOT prepared the EIS to identify improvements to address current and long-term traffic congestion and safety needs of SR 30.

Known locally as the Valley View Highway, the SR 30 study area runs from 1000 West (SR 252) in Logan to SR 23 in Petersboro. Since its beginning in July 2016, the study has identified exceptional environmental issues and conditions on the corridor, projected future conditions, established the corridor "Purpose and Need," evaluated possible improvement options, and has now identified the selected alternatives outlined in the FEIS document.

During the study process, UDOT consulted with affected and required agencies and gathered input from local governments, interested stakeholders and the public.

To read the FEIS and ROD, interested persons can view copies at the Logan City Library, 255 North Main St.; at the Cache County Clerk's office in the County Administration Building, 179 North Main St.; or the UDOT Region One Headquarters, 166 West Southwell St., Ogden. A copy of the FEIS and the ROD also are available for review electronically at udot.utah.gov/sr30study.
