Alert: The following services will be unavailable on Saturday, January 5, 2013 from 12 a.m. (midnight) to 6 a.m. CST due to system maintenance.

Phase 3: Obtain final approvals

WisDOT sends information about its acquisitions from farm operations to the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP).

DATCP reviews the information and determines whether to prepare an Agricultural Impact Statement (AIS). When DATCP prepares an AIS it sends copies to the affected farm operations, their legislators and the public. WisDOT commonly includes the AIS in its Environment Impact Statements.

Environmental documents are sent to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for approval if it is a federal project. Similarly, projects that are state funded are approved by WisDOT.

Citizen input is sought throughout the development of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and they may request a copy of the Draft EIS. A public hearing is held to obtain citizen comments on the Draft EIS. However, citizens can give feedback to the transportation region where the project is located at any time.
