This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

The FHWA, in cooperation with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), will prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) on a proposed project to construct a four lane freeway or expressway bypass of the community of Hopland, on Route 101 in Southern Mendocino County. The project limits extend from kp 14.2 to 22.5 (pm 8.8 to 14.0). The project is needed to reduce operational conflicts, accommodate existing and future traffic demand, reduce travel time, increase safety, improve air quality, reduce noise in Hopland and provide the facility concept identified in the “Inter-regional Transportation Strategic Plan”.
Three aligments are being proposed at this time as well as a “No Build” alternative. All of the alignments potentially affect oak woodlands, riparian forest and pre-historic cultural resources. A Public Open House has been held to solicit opinions from the community and a Project Development Team has been formed to determine the scope of the project. There will be a public scoping meeting to discuss the proposed project and another opportunity for public comment on the draft environmental document during the circulation phase of the draft environmental impact statement (DEIS).
To ensure that the full range of issues related to this proposed action is addressed and all significant issues identified, comments and suggestions are invited from all interested parties. The views of agencies that may have interest in the effect of the proposal on historic properties are specifically solicited. Comments or questions concerning this proposed action and the EIS should be directed to the FHWA at the address provided above.
