The FHWA, as the lead Federal agency, in cooperation with the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) signed a ROD on August 6, 2007, for the proposed Interstate 495 (Long Island Expressway) Rest Area Upgrade Project between Exits 51 & 52 (eastbound). The proposed project evaluated alternatives for upgrading the existing rest area for cars and trucks located on I-495/LIE eastbound between Exits 51 and 52.
Since the ROD was signed, NYSDOT notified FHWA that Federal funds will not be utilized during the final design and construction of the project. Therefore, FHWA has determined that the ROD and the Final Environmental Impact Statement dated May 21, 2007, will be rescinded since there will be no Federal action, and the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 4321, et seq. and 23 Code of Federal Regulations 771 no longer apply.
Comments and questions concerning the proposed action should be directed to FHWA at the address provided above.
