SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Effective July 1, 2007, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) assigned, and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) assumed, environmental responsibilities for this project pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327. Notice is hereby given that Caltrans, 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 California. Caltrans proposes to replace the Alameda Creek Bridge and realign the bridge approaches on SR-84 from postmile 13.0 to 13.6. The project would replace the existing 1928, two-lane bridge with a new, two-lane structure with standard eight-foot wide shoulders, approximately 75 feet north of the existing bridge. The purpose of this project is to correct structural and geometric deficiencies of the Alameda Creek Bridge and its approaches while providing a facility that meets driver expectations of SR-84's operating speed, all of which improve safety. The actions by the Federal agencies, and the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR)/Environmental Assessment (EA) for the project, approved on September 25, 2017, and in the Caltrans Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) issued on August 16, 2017, and in other documents in the Caltrans project records. The Final EIR/EA, FONSI, and other project records are available by contacting Caltrans at the address provided above.
