SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Notice is hereby given that the FHWA and other Federal agencies have taken final agency actions by issuing approvals for the following highway project in the State of California. This project would improve safety and provide congestion relief on State Route 46, San Luis Obispo County, California. This would be accomplished by creating an additional travel lane in each direction (east and west), separating the east and west bound lanes by a median, improving inside and outside widths, and providing left-turn channelization at all public road intersections within the project limits. Safety would also be improved at the State Route 46/41 junction by replacing the at grade intersection with a new interchange for the connection. The FHWA project reference number is H240 00PE (006). The actions by the Federal agencies, and the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the Environmental Assessment (EA)/Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the project, approved on May 19th, 2006, and in other documents in the FHWA administrative record.
