SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Effective January 17, 2017, FHWA assigned to UDOT certain responsibilities of FHWA for environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws and regulations for highway projects in Utah, pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327. Actions taken by UDOT on FHWA's behalf pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 constitute Federal agency actions for purposes of Federal law. Notice is hereby given that Start Printed Page 2945UDOT has taken final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1) by issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for the I-15 Northbound; Bangerter Highway to I-215 project in the State of Utah. This project proposes to address current and future travel demand and improve safety on northbound I-15 between Bangerter Highway and I-215. Improvements include construction of two separate collector-distributor (C-D) systems; each would consist of a three-lane roadway that would be separated from mainline northbound I-15 by a concrete traffic barrier. Northbound C-D System A would separate from I-15 just prior to 9000 South and connect to the I-215 east/westbound entrance ramps and the 7200 South exit ramp. Northbound C-D System B would separate from I-15 at Bangerter Highway and would rejoin I-15 at 9000 South. C-D System B would provide connections to the following locations: 12300 South, 11400 South, 10600 South and 9000 South. These improvements were identified in the Environmental Assessment (EA) as Alternative 3. The actions by UDOT, and the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the EA and UDOT Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the project (Finding of No Significant Impact, Environmental Assessment and Section 4(f) Evaluation, 1-15 Northbound; Bangerter Highway to I-215 in Salt Lake County, Utah, Project No. S-I15-7(341)295), issued on November 12, 2018, and in other documents in the UDOT project records.
