Abstract : This supplemental Environmental Assessment (SEA) examines the potential environmental impacts resulting from the changes to the Proposed Action during the design of Phases 2 and 3 of the Mid-Bay Bridge Connector that have occurred since the original Environmental Assessment (EA) dated November 2008 and Finding of No Significant Impact/Finding of No Practicable Alternative (FONSI/FONPA) signed 05 December 2008; the original 2008 EA is incorporated by reference per 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1502.21 (USAF, 2008). Eglin Air Force Base (AFB) has determined that a SEA is needed when changes to the Proposed Action involve changes in environmental impacts, or when there are new circumstances or information relating to environmental impacts. The environmental analysis contained within this SEA will determine if there are significant impacts requiring preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) or if the impacts are not significant, a FONSI/FONPA. The Mid-Bay Bridge Authority (MBBA), through its contractor HDR, prepared this SEA in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 (42 United States Code [U.S.C.] 4321 et seq.), the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations of 1978 (40 CFR 1500-1508), and the Air Force s Environmental Impact Analysis Process (EIAP) (32 CFR Part 989).
