MADISON COUNTY — An environmental assessment (EA) for the proposed extension of Rice Road in Madison County is now available, according to the National Park Service.
This project seeks to extend Rice Road and create an associated multi-use trail to the west of U.S. Highway 51 in Ridgeland. This extension would provide access to the northern portion of the planned Ridgeland City Center development, requiring a right-of-way of approximately 0.7 acres on NPS land.
NPS reports the EA has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, the National Historic Preservation Act, NPS Director’s Order 12 and regulations of the Council on Environmental Quality.
It will be available for review on the NPS Planning, Environment and Public Comment website at parkplanning.nps.gov through Oct. 25.
A hardcopy of the document is also available in the Visitor Center of the Natchez Trace Parkway (Milepost 266, Tupelo, MS) and by e-mail or phone request.
