SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) and the Chautauqua County Department of Public Facilities (CCDPF), will prepare an EIS on a proposal to construct the Millennium Parkway in Chautauqua County, New York. An industrial corridor, including industrial districts located along Werle Road, Harrington Road, Progress Drive, and County Route (CR) 82 (Middle Road), is being developed to provide further economic opportunities within the surrounding communities. This industrial corridor includes the Chadwick Bay Industrial Park, located to the east of the City of Dunkirk in the Town of Sheridan. Although directly adjacent to air and rail facilities, tractortrailer truck traffic access to the industrial corridor is currently not adequate. The purpose of the Millennium Parkway Project is to improve tractortrailer truck traffic access to the industrial corridor, including the Chadwick Bay Industrial Park, from New York (NY) Route 60 (Bennett Road). Objectives to be met with the construction of the Millennium Parkway are to: Improve tractor-trailer truckoriented infrastructure to the industrial corridor; improve vehicular and E:\FR\FM\27DEN1.SGM 27DEN1 mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 73420 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 247 / Thursday, December 27, 2007 / Notices pedestrian safety along the existing truck route; and reduce travel time from NY Route 60 to the industrial corridor. The reasonable range of alternatives will include a No-Build Alternative and three Build Alternatives, which are briefly described below. Additional input from Participating and Cooperating Agencies, and from the public, will be necessary before a final decision will be made regarding the full range of alternatives to be studied. • The No-Build Alternative would utilize the existing truck route in its current condition. This alternative would maintain the existing truck route along NY Route 60 to NY Route 5 (Lakeshore Drive) to CR 82 in its present state with only routine maintenance to keep the existing truck route open to traffic. • The Build Alternatives are: Improving the existing truck route; improving other existing routes; or constructing a new urban collector on new alignment by utilizing existing and/ or new roads. Incorporated into and studied with the various build alternatives will be design variations of grade and alignment. The purpose of the Millennium Parkway Project is to improve tractortrailer truck traffic access to the industrial corridor, including the Chadwick Bay Industrial Park, from NY Route 60. In order to meet this purpose, the project limits have been sufficiently delineated to include the industrial corridor. The western boundary of the Project Limits has been established as the existing truck route along NY Route 60, since the tractor-trailer truck traffic currently passing through the City of Dunkirk utilizes this route. The northern boundary of the project limits has been established as the remaining portion of the existing truck route along NY Route 5 and CR 82 as well as the CSX Transportation (CSXT) Railroad, to avoid any additional railroad crossings. The eastern boundary of the project limits has been established as Harrington Road, CR 82, and Cook Road to avoid conflicts with the Dunkirk Airport. Finally, the southern boundary of the project limits has been established as Interstate 90 (I–90) to avoid conflicts with this route (I–90). The limits considered to define the bounds of the affected environment for the environmental assessment of the Build Alternatives, which vary slightly from the Project Limits, are generally as follows: northwest along NY Route 60 from the intersection with I–90, Interchange 59; east then north along the City of Dunkirk city limit line; northeast along the CSXT Railroad; south along the existing alignments of VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:00 Dec 26, 2007 Jkt 214001 Harrington Road, CR 82, and Cook Road; then southwest along the existing alignment of I–90. The anticipated length of the proposed roadway will be determined based on the preferred alternative. The highway’s southern terminus would be located at NY Route 60, north of I–90, Interchange 59, and its northern terminus would be located in the vicinity of the industrial corridor. Letters describing the proposed action and soliciting comments will be sent to appropriate Federal, State, and local agencies, and to private organizations and citizens who have previously expressed or are known to have interest in this proposal. As part of the formal scoping process for this project, a series of public meetings will be held in the towns of Dunkirk and Sheridan this fall. Public notice will be given regarding the time and place of the meetings. The draft EIS will be available for public and agency reviews and comment prior to a public hearing. The draft EIS is expected to be completed in the spring of 2009. To ensure that the full range of issues related to this proposed action are addressed and all significant issues identified, comments and suggestions are invited from all interested parties. Comments or questions concerning this proposed action and the EIS should be directed to the FHWA, NYSDOT, or CCDPF at the addresses provided earlier.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), will prepare an EIS for the proposed modifications to U.S. 97 in Deschutes County, Oregon. The proposed improvements may involve the reconstruction or realignment of the existing U.S. 97 roadway between the Bend Parkway/Empire Avenue and Deschutes Market Road-Tumalo Junction interchanges. Improvements to the corridor are considered necessary to meet the mobility standards and facility management goals consistent with U.S. 97’s designation as a statewide expressway, address current and future transportation demand, and improve safety along the corridor including the intersections of U.S. 97 with Cooley and Robal Roads. Current traffic volumes exceed roadway capacity. Traffic is expected to increase 20 to 40% by 2032. The intersections of U.S. 97 with Cooley and Robal Roads are in the top 5 percent of crash locations on state highways within Oregon. The northern portion of the project is located in a predominately rural area. Lands on the eastern side of the highway are being considered for inclusion into the City of Bend’s Urban Growth Boundary. The middle portion of the project begins the transition from rural to urban uses, with the number of accesses increasing. Access to rural residential uses are located on the west side of the highway and access to two mobile home parks are located on the eastern side of the highway. The E:\FR\FM\27DEN1.SGM 27DEN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the New York 
State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) and the Chautauqua County 
Department of Public Facilities (CCDPF), will prepare an EIS on a

Alternative and three Build Alternatives, which are briefly described 
below. Additional input from Participating and Cooperating Agencies,
