2014 & 2016 - Public and Agency scoping began in early 2014 and again in 2016. 

NEW June 2017 - The project environmental document is nearing completion and the design is at "Plans-In-Hand" (PIH) stage. In May 2017, the Department conducted an initial Plans in Hand (PIH) review with comments due on or before June 15, 2017. Updated plans are available for viewing here.
