Abstract : The United States Air Force (Air Force) proposes to implement the ClP and the associated construction, demolition and infrastructure projects. Components of the CIP include road realignments and infrastructure improvements in order to facilitate traffic flow on base and on roads immediately off base. Facilities would be constructed or renovated in order to collocate similar mission functions to improve mission efficiency and synergy. Outdated facilities would be demolished to provide opportunities for future base development. No additional personnel would be located at Shaw AFB from the implementation of the CIP. This Environmental Assessment (EA) analyzes the impacts associated with the implementation of the Proposed Action, Alternative 1 and the No Action alternative. The alternative action would consist of the projects included in the Proposed Action in different locations and an emphasis on renovating existing facilities rather than demolition and new construction. Under the No Action alternative, the CIP and the associated projects would not be implemented.
