ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice rescinds the Notice of Intent for preparing an Environmental Impact Statement that was issued on July 21, 2003, for a proposed transportation improvement project in Boulder, Broomfield, and Jefferson Counties, Colorado. The action is being taken because there are no federal or state funds identified to make the proposed transportation improvements in the corridor for the next 20 years. It is not known when federal or state funds may become available for these improvements therefore an Environmental Impact Statement will not be prepared until further notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in cooperation with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) initiated an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) with a Notice of Intent July 21, 2003, for an improved connection between the western terminus of the Northwest Parkway in Broomfield County and the SH 58, 1–70, or C–470 freeway systems to the south in Jefferson County. This corridor is referred to as the Northwest Corridor. The FHWA and CDOT have determined that while major transportation improvements in the northwest Denver metropolitan area are needed, federal, state, or other funds are not available to meet these needs in the foreseeable future. Much work has been completed towards an EIS for this corridor and can E:\FR\FM\01JYN1.SGM 01JYN1
