Preliminary engineering and environmental work on the project has been funded through the County of Riverside and the Federal Lands Forest Highway Program, which is jointly administered by the FHWA, the USDA Forest Service and the California Department of Transportation. Following public hearings on the Draft EIS/EIR, comments were received from the general public, the USDA Forest Service, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Department of the Interior. On the basis of these comments, and upon further analysis of the project purpose and need, alternatives, and the cost to mitigate impacts to biological and cultural resources, the Forest Highway programming agencies and the County of Riverside have determined that the project is not viable. The project is being removed from the Federal Lands Highway Program of projects. All engineering and environmental studies have been sopped.
