The FDOT is currently wrapping up the Alternative Corridor Evaluation (ACE) process. The ACE process is conducted to evaluate corridors and recommend those that should move forward for additional analysis as part of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). A Methodology Memorandum (MM) was developed as part of the ACE process.  The MM outlined the analysis methodology that would be used to refine and eliminate corridor alternatives. The project team met with various federal, state and local agencies to review the document and obtain comments. Following Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) approval of the MM, an Alternative Corridor Evaluation Report (ACER) was prepared, which recommends that three alternative corridors be considered for further evaluation. The ACER is currently being reviewed by the environmental agencies and FHWA through the Efficient Transportation Decision Making (ETDM) Environmental Screening Tool (EST) as ETDM number 13961.
