USACE Seeks Comments on Discharge of Fill Material

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Wilmington District, is seeking public comments for an application received from the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) regarding the discharge of fill material into waters of the United States.

USACE received an application from the NCDOT regarding a potential future requirement for Department of the Army (DA) authorization to discharge dredged or fill material into waters of the United States associated with proposed improvements to existing NC 11, SR 1212 (Shortcut Road) and portions of existing US 13 from just south of the NC 11 intersection with NC 561 to the US 13 interchange with US 158 and NC 45, a distance of approximately 7.8 miles between Ahoskie and Winton in Hertford County, North Carolina.

The Corps is soliciting comments from the public to consider and evaluate the impacts of this proposed activity. Any comments received will be considered by the Corps of Engineers to determine whether to issue, modify, condition or deny a permit for this proposal.

To make this decision, comments are used to assess impacts on endangered species, historic properties, water quality, general environmental effects and all other appropriate public interest factors. Comments are used in the preparation of an Environmental Assessment (EA) and/or an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
