ACTION: Revised Notice of Intent (NOI). AGENCY: Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), Department of Transportation (DOT). SUMMARY: The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:56 May 12, 2010 Jkt 220001 PO 00000 Frm 00136 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27053 (PANYNJ) are issuing this Revised Notice of Intent (NOI) to advise the public of modifications to the environmental review process for the Cross Harbor Freight Movement Program (Project Identification Number: X500.19). These revisions include a change in project sponsorship to the PANYNJ, the intent of FHWA and PANYNJ to use a tiered process to facilitate project decision-making, and the intent of FHWA and PANYNJ to utilize the environmental review provisions afforded under Section 6002 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU). This notice revises the NOI that was published in the Federal Register on June 7, 2001. The greater New York/New Jersey region is the financial center of the U.S. economy and the nation’s largest consumer market. The regional economy relies on a goods movement system overwhelmingly dependent on trucking and an aging and congested highway network. Regional forecasts of truck growth vary depending on the source, year, and geography, but available sources agree that truck tonnage is anticipated to increase substantially, with some forecasts calling for a 36% increase in tonnage by 2035. In the absence of network or system improvements, this growth and the region’s dependence on trucking for freight distribution will result in serious regional highway congestion and extended travel delays—a trend which could threaten the economic vitality of the greater New York/New Jersey region. The EIS will analyze alternatives that would provide short-term and long-term strategies for improving the regional freight network, reducing traffic congestion, enhancing modal diversity and system redundancy, improving air quality, and providing economic benefits. The FHWA and PANYNJ are serving as joint-lead agencies for the preparation of the EIS and are issuing this notice to solicit public and agency input into the scope of the EIS and to advise the public that outreach activities will be conducted by FHWA and PANYNJ. New York State and New Jersey Departments of Transportation (NYSDOT and NJDOT) are serving as cooperating agencies for the preparation of the EIS. The EIS analyses will be conducted using ‘‘tiering,’’ as described in 40 CFR 1508.28, which is a staged process applied to the environmental review of complex projects. Tier I of the EIS will allow the agencies to focus on general transportation modes and alignments for the proposed project, including logical E:\FR\FM\13MYN1.SGM 13MYN1
