SUMMARY: This notice announces that Federal actions taken by the 
California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) pursuant to its 
assigned responsibilities under 23 U.S.C. 327 are final within the 
meaning of 23 U.S.C. 139 (l)(1). FHWA, on behalf of Caltrans, is 
issuing this notice to announce that, with respect to the State Route 
101 Willits Bypass Project in Willits (Mendocino County), California, a 
Re-evaluation was prepared in order to determine whether the existing 
Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) is still valid. Based upon 
the analyses contained in the Re-evaluation, Caltrans has made the 
determination that the existing FEIS is still valid and the preparation 
of a SEIS is not warranted and will therefore not be undertaken.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Caltrans conducted a Re-evaluation of the 
Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) issued by FHWA in October

response to new information and changes that were made to the project, 
including allowing the construction contractor to use city streets 
during construction of the project.
    The purpose of the Re-evaluation was to examine potential 
environmental impacts resulting from the new information and proposed 
changes to the Willits Bypass Project and in order to determine whether 
the FEIS was still valid or whether a SEIS should be prepared in 
accordance with 40 CFR 1502.9(c). Based upon the Re-evaluation, 
Caltrans made the determination that preparation of a SEIS was not 
warranted and would not be undertaken (Caltrans made the determination 
in January 2014).
    A claim seeking judicial review of the January 2014 Federal agency 
determination to not undertake a SEIS will be barred if the claim is
