​I-5 Corridor Reinforcement - Final EIS
​The final EIS includes refinements, corrections and updates to the draft EIS based on the comments and other input we received as well as from further study and analysis. 
 
Links to the final EIS are below. Useful information to have before reading the EIS is included in Notes to Reader. These notes are not a summary of the document; rather, they are intended to make the information in the EIS easier to find and understand. The notes also identify the key changes that have been made to the EIS between the draft and the final.
 
Below, you may click on specific files you wish to view. BPA’s response to comments received during the draft EIS comment period are included in Volume 3 (Volume 3A through 3H).
 
Files vary in size. Large files are split into several smaller ones, but some files are over 30 megabytes and may take a few minutes to load onto your screen.
