SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FHWA, in cooperation with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), published a NOI in the Federal Register on August 2, 2002 (Volume 67, No. 149, Page 50504), and a NOI revision was made on January 20, 2004 (Vol. 69, No. 12, Page 2809) to prepare an EIS for Loop 9 from US 287 to IH 20 in Dallas and Ellis Counties. The original notice Start Printed Page 17282can be viewed electronically at: http://www.gpo.gov/​fdsys/​pkg/​FR-2002-08-02/​html/​02-19541.htm. The revised notice can be viewed electronically at: http://www.gpo.gov/​fdsys/​pkg/​FR-2004-01-20/​html/​04-1131.htm. As a result of the retirement of the Trans Texas Corridor concept plan and change in the regional growth projections in the study area, it was determined that the travel demand in the Loop 9 project area would not warrant the project as originally proposed. TxDOT intends to conduct a feasibility study to determine a new direction for this transportation corridor. As a result, the above mentioned notices are rescinded.
