SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing a revision to an existing guide in the agency’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series and the withdrawal of a regulatory guide. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public information such as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the agency’s regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. Revision 3 of RG 3.11, ‘‘Design, Construction, and Inspection of Embankment Retention Systems at Uranium Recovery Facilities,’’ was issued with a temporary identification as Draft Regulatory Guide, DG–3032. This guide describes some engineering practices and methods generally considered by the NRC staff to be satisfactory for the design, construction, and inspection of embankment retention systems used for retaining liquid and solid wastes from uranium recovery operations. These practices and methods are the result of NRC review and action on a number of specific cases, and they reflect the latest general engineering approaches that are acceptable to the NRC staff. If future information results in alternative methods, the NRC staff will review such methods to determine their acceptability. DG–3032 updated and combined the guidance in Revision 2 of RG 3.11, and Revision 1 of RG 3.11.1, ‘‘Operational Inspection and Surveillance of Embankment Retention Systems for Uranium Mill Tailings.’’ For this reason, PO 00000 Frm 00097 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 4th day of November, 2008.

ACTION: Notice of withdrawal. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FHWA is issuing this notice to advise the public that the Notice of Intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed Interstate 5 (I–5) High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) and Truck Lanes project in the City of Santa Clarita and the County of Los Angeles (Federal Register Vol. 72, No. 90; FR Doc. E7– 8937), California will be withdrawn, and an Environmental Assessment (EA) in lieu of an EIS is being prepared for this proposed highway project.

Main St., MS 16A, Los Angeles, CA 90012, (213) 897–5446. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, on behalf of the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), is advising the general public that Caltrans conducted studies of the potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed highway project. The project proposes to widen existing I–5 between the State Route 14 (SR–14) Interchange and the Parker Road Interchange. The project area is in Los Angeles County and covers a distance of approximately 13.6 miles (mi). Within the limits of the proposed project, I–5 currently provides generally four mixed-flow lanes in each direction, with the exception of three mixed-flow lanes in each direction at the I–5/SR–14 interchange. In addition, two truck lanes in each direction are separated from the mainline freeway south of the Weldon Canyon Overcrossing. The project segment of I–5 crosses the City of Santa Clarita, the unincorporated community of Castaic, and other parts of unincorporated northern Los Angeles County. The project proposes extending the HOV lanes on I–5 from the newly constructed HOV lanes south of the SR– 14 interchange to just south of the Parker Road/I–5 interchange, incorporating truck climbing lanes from the SR–14 interchange to Pico Canyon Road/Lyons Avenue, and constructing and/or extending auxiliary lanes between interchanges at six locations.
