Environmental Impact Assessment

Lakeshore Path Limnology Bypass

University of Wisconsin – Madison

DFD #22A2N

The state of Wisconsin Department of Administration/Department of Facilities Development (DOA/DFD), in conjunction with University of Wisconsin System and on behalf of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has retained Tetra Tech to prepare an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for the proposed construction of the UW-Madison Lakeshore Path Limnology Pedestrian and Bike Path. The proposed project is designed to improve the Howard Temin Lakeshore Path route around the Hasler Laboratory of Limnology by creating a dedicated bicycle path around the south side of the building. The area on the south side of the Hasler Laboratory of Limnology will be widened by construction of a retaining wall to support the adjacent hillside. The EIA was prepared in accordance with the Wisconsin Environmental Policy Act (WEPA) and Wisconsin Statutes 1.11, as well as the in accordance to specific elements from the UWSA adoption of these statutes (1999 version).

Available for download below is the Final EIA Report demonstrating compliance with WEPA requirements and the recommendation for conclusion of the WEPA process (with a recommendation to not elevate this process to an Environmental Impact Statement). This Final EIA Report will be hosted on the website until July 30, 2024.

This concludes the WEPA process for this project. Please contact Ben Peotter ([email protected]) with any further questions.
