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. The Doyle Drive project will replace the existing facility with a new six-lane facility and an southbound auxiliary lane between the Park Presidio Interchange and the new Presidio access at Girard Road. The new facility would consist of two 3.4 meter (11 foot) lanes and one 3.6 meter (12 foot) outside lane in each direction with 3.0-meter (10 foot) outside shoulders and 1.2-meter (4 foot) inside shoulders. The landscaped median between the northbound and southbound traffic lanes will vary from five meters (16 feet) to 12.5 meters (41 feet).

A 390 meter (1,279 foot) long high-viaduct will be constructed between the Park Presidio Interchange and San Francisco National Cemetery. Shallow cut-and-cover tunnels would extend 260 meters (853 feet) past the cemetery to east of Battery Blaney.
