Notice is hereby given that the FHWA has signed a Record of Decision for the First Street Viaduct and Street Widening Project [#BHLS-5006(636)] in Los Angeles, California. The project will widen the First Street Viaduct by approximately twenty-six feet, providing two eastbound and two westbound traffic lanes on the viaduct between Vignes Street and Mission Road separated by dual light rail tracks within a raised median. The project would also widen First Street east of the viaduct between Mission Road and Clarence Street to align the street with the widened viaduct. Further improvements to the viaduct will replace the north railing, provide roadway shoulders and reconstruct the Santa Fe Avenue and Myers Street undercrossings to meet current design standards. Total length of the project is approximately 0.7 miles. The actions by the Federal agencies, and the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the project, approved on November 30, 2005, in the FHWA Record of Decision (ROD) issued on February 22, 2006, and in other documents in the FHWA administrative record. The FEIS, ROD, and other documents in the FHWA administrative record file are available by contacting the FHWA or the California Department of Transportation at the addresses provided above.
