Notice is hereby given that the FHWA and other Federal agencies have taken final agency actions by issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for the following highway project in the State of Washington: I-405 Renton Nickel Improvement Project. This project extends along I-405 from just east of the I-5/I-405 interchange in Tukwila north to the SR 169 interchange, and south on SR 167 to SW 41st Street. It consists of one new general-purpose lane in each direction along I-405 throughout most of the project limits. On SR 167, the project will extend the existing southbound HOV lane north to I-405 and add a southbound auxiliary lane from I-405 to the SW 41st Street off-ramp. The actions by the Federal agencies, and the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the October 2006 Environmental Assessment (EA) and the January 31, 2007 Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI), and in other documents in the FHWA administrative record. The EA, FONSI and other documents in the FHWA administrative record are available by contacting the FHWA or WSDOT at the addresses provided above. The EA can be viewed and downloaded from the project Web site at www.wsdot.wa.gov/Projects/i405/corridor/library/rentea.htm or viewed at public libraries in the project area. Since Federal funding is not currently available for this project, an FHWA project number has not been established.
