Notice is hereby given that FHWA and other Federal agencies have taken final agency actions related to the Pyramid Highway/US 395 Connection Project located in Washoe County, Nevada. The FHWA, in cooperation with the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) (FHWA-NV-EIS-12-02-D) and Final EIS (FHWA-NV-EIS-12-02-F) to improve Pyramid Highway between Queen Way and Calle de la Plata and provide a new connection between Pyramid Highway and United States (US) 395 (referred to as the US 395 Connection). The project includes arterial improvements along approximately seven miles of Pyramid Highway from Queen Way to Calle de la Plata, and a new US 395 Connection that would start near Sparks Boulevard, run west along a ridge alignment, cross Sun Valley Boulevard south of Rampion Way, and terminate at the existing US 395/Parr Boulevard interchange, which would be modified to accommodate the new US 395 Connection. A new interchange for the US 395 Connection would be built west of Sun Valley Boulevard. The project includes improvements on Disc Drive between Pyramid Highway and Vista Boulevard, and would extend Disc Drive from Pyramid Highway west to the new US 395 Connection.
