Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of functions of the FAR, and whether it will have practical utility; whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection of information is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and methodology; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways in which we can minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through the use of appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES B.

The change is based on calculating the burden for each clause in FAR Part 46 associated with this information collection requirement.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: GSA intends to prepare a SEIS to analyze the

changes to the San Ysidro LPOE Improvements Project. The San Ysidro 
LPOE is located along Interstate 5 at the United States-Mexico border 
in the San Ysidro community of San Diego, California.

Background

    A Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Record of Decision 
(ROD) were published in September 2009 that addressed the 
reconfiguration and expansion of the San Ysidro LPOE in three 
independent construction phases to improve overall capacity and 
operational efficiency. Phase I is fully funded and included the 
construction of additional northbound vehicle lanes and inspection 
facilities, a pedestrian bridge, and a new southbound pedestrian 
crossing facility on the east side of the LPOE. To date, the pedestrian 
bridge and southbound crossing facility have been constructed. Phase II 
would involve the construction of new buildings. Phase III would 
include construction of a southbound roadway and associated inspection 
equipment, as well as the addition of a new southbound pedestrian 
crossing on the west side of the LPOE at Virginia Avenue.
    The SEIS will address design changes to Phase III of the project, 
which include modifications to the number of vehicle lanes on the 
proposed southbound roadway and the incorporation of northbound 
pedestrian inspections at the proposed pedestrian crossing facility on 
the west side of the LPOE.

Alternatives Under Consideration

    Two build alternatives and one no build alternative are under 
consideration. The No Build Alternative assumes that no additional 
improvements would be constructed at the LPOE, and the LPOE would 
continue to operate under its current configuration.
    Alternative 1 would include the northbound/southbound pedestrian 
crossing at Virginia Avenue and six southbound vehicular lanes on the 
proposed southbound roadway that would connect the terminus of 
Interstate 5 to the El Chaparral LPOE in Mexico.
    Alternative 2 would include the northbound/southbound pedestrian 
crossing facility and 10 southbound vehicle lanes on the proposed 
southbound roadway.

Scoping Process
