SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Notice is hereby given that the FHWA has taken final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1) by issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for the following highway project in the State of Utah: the Hyde Park to North Logan Transportation Corridor (200 East) in Cache County, Utah, project number FHWA-UT-EIS-07-04-F. The roadway will extend from 1400 North in Logan to 3700 North in Hyde Park. The selected alternative follows 200 East between 1400 North and 2200 North, shifts west to follow 100 East between 2400 North and 2800 North, then shifts east to follow 150 East to 3700 North. The selected alternative will be five lanes (two through lanes in each direction and a center turn lane) from 1400 North to 2200 North and three lanes (one through lane in each direction and a center turn lane) from 2200 North to 3700 North. Portions of the project will be constructed on new alignment and will likely be implemented using a phased approach, which is described in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS). These actions will improve regional connectivity and mobility and provide transportation infrastructure that supports economic development within the cities of Hyde Park, Logan, and North Logan in Utah.

The actions by the FHWA, and the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the FEIS for the project, approved on June 22, 2011, in the FHWA Record of Decision (ROD) issued on October 14, 2011, and in other documents in the FHWA administrative record.
