Additionally, Section 306 of Title 23, United States Code, requires the Secretary of Transportation to issue guidance to encourage States to utilize, to the maximum extent practicable, private sector sources for surveying and mapping services for projects under title 23 of the United States Code; and, to develop a process for the oversight and regular monitoring of each State’s use of the private sector to provide these services. The FHWA, via a survey, will be requesting information from the State Transportation Agencies to determine the percent of projects in each state for which private sector sources were utilized for surveying and mapping services. Included in the survey will be the request for information from the State transportation agencies, on the extent to which they use the private sector for surveying and mapping activities. Information obtained from the survey will be used to issue revised guidance recommending appropriate roles for government and private sector surveying activities and in continuing to encourage States to use private sector sources to provide these services. The survey results will also be used to develop a process for the oversight and regular monitoring of each State’s use of PO 00000 Frm 00105 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the private sector to provide these services.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that the FHWA has taken final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1) by issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for the following highway project in the State of California: The Marin-Sonoma Narrows HOV Widening Project in Marin and Sonoma Counties. The project consists of the addition of continuous northbound and southbound HOV lanes from south of the Route 37 Interchange in the City of Novato, Marin County, to north of the Corona Road Overcrossing in the City of Petaluma, Sonoma County, State of California. As the principal route in the coastal northwest region between the San Francisco Bay Area and Oregon, US 101 provides a continuous north/south route through Marin and Sonoma Counties for long distance, inter-city, and intra-city traffic. The project is needed to reduce recurring traffic congestion and improve mobility, and address physical and operational deficiencies of the roadway. The continuous northbound and southbound HOV lanes would be accomplished within the existing median of the US 101 facility, with minor outside widening in the southern and northern segments of the project. However, the middle segment containing a four-lane expressway with open medians and direct-access driveways, would be replaced with a six-lane, access-controlled freeway to standardize horizontal and vertical curves, lane widths, and one new interchange.
