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. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:44 Dec 19, 2013 Jkt 232001 The actions by FHWA, and the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the re-evaluation for the project, approved on December 6, 2013.
