Fish and Wildlife Service

Draft Environmental Assessment and Habitat Conservation Plan for 
an Incidental Take Permit for the Six Points Road Interchange and 
Related Development in Marion and Hendricks Counties, Indiana

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of comment period extension.


SUMMARY: This notice advises the public and other agencies that the 
comment period for the draft Environmental Assessment (EA), Habitat 
Conservation Plan (HCP) and Incidental Take Permit (ITP) application is 
extended due to the department-wide prohibition on the use of 
electronic mail and the Internet. The original notice of availability 
was published in the Federal Register on November 20, 2001, (Vol. 66, 
No. 224, 58159-58160). Early in December 2001, the U.S. District Court 
issued a temporary restraining order on all Department of Interior 
employees use of the Internet. The original notice listed an e-mail 
address where comments could be sent. However, the public access to 
this e-mail address and Internet site has been invalid since December 
2001. The Service is concerned that any comments sent via e-mail would 
not be available for our review. This notice is provided pursuant to 
section 10(a) of the Act and National Environmental Policy Act 
regulations (40 CFR 1506.6). Send comments on the draft HCP and EA to 
the Regional HCP Coordinator, at the address below.

DATES: Written comments must be received on or before March 8, 2002.

ADDRESSES: Persons wishing to review the documents may obtain copies by 
writing, telephoning, or faxing: Regional HCP Coordinator, U.S. Fish 
and Wildlife Services, 1 Federal Drive, Fort Snelling, Minnesota 55111-
4056, Telephone: (612) 713-5343, Fax: (612) 713-5292.
    Public Involvement: Documents will be available for public 
inspection during normal business hours (8:00-4:30), at the U.S. Fish 
and Wildlife Service Regional Office in Fort Snelling, Minnesota, and 
at the Bloomington Field Office in Bloomington, Indiana. The draft HCP 
and EA are available for public review and comment for a period of 30 
additional days.
