·    What does the project involve?  The project involves construction of a third travel in each direction, within the existing median, from SR 665 to Stringtown Road.  
 
·    What is a PM2.5 Hotspot Analysis?  A PM2.5 Hotspot Analysis is an estimation of likely future localized PM2.5 pollutant concentrations and a comparison of those concentrations to the National Ambient Air Quality Standards.
 
·    Why it was done?  A PM2.5 Hotspot Analysis was prepared because the project was deemed a project of air quality concern by the resource agencies because of the new lanes, high traffic volumes, and truck percentages.
 
·    Why it is being made available for public review and comment?  The PM2.5 Hotspot Analysis is being made available for public review and comment because USEPA’s Transportation Conformity Guidance for Quantitative Hot-spot Analyses in PM2.5 and PM10 Nonattainment and Maintenance Areas requires agencies to provide an opportunity for public review and comment (40 CFR 93.105(e)).
