ACTION: Rescind Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). AGENCY: The FHWA, on behalf of the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), is issuing this notice to advise the public that it has rescinded the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI), which was issued on May 18, 2010, and published on December 19, 2011 in the Federal Register (Federal Register/Vol. 76, No. 243/Monday, December 19, 2011/Notices, [48940]) for a proposed highway project on U.S. Route 101 in Humboldt County. The FONSI was also revalidated on January 24, 2014, and notice of that action was published on February 26, 2014 in the Federal Register (Federal Register/ Vol.79, No. 38/Wednesday, February 26, 2014/Notices [108701]).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Effective July 1, 2007, FHWA assigned, and Caltrans assumed, environmental responsibilities for this project pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327. Notice is hereby given that Caltrans has rescinded the FONSI for the following highway project in the State of California: Richardson Grove Operational Improvement Project. On May 18, 2010, Caltrans advised the public that it had prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) and a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the Richardson Grove Operational Improvement Project to provide Surface Transportation Assistance Act (STAA) access on US Route 101, in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Project limit is from 1.1 mile north of the Mendocino County line to 2.2 miles north of the Mendocino County line and would include minor curve realignments, drainage improvements, shoulder widening, cuts and fills, and a retaining wall. After issuing a Supplement to the EA, Caltrans revalidated the FONSI on January 24, 2014. Caltrans withdrew the FONSI on November 17, 2014, due to issuance of the Writ of Mandate by the Humboldt County Superior Court, on October 21, 2014, in the CEQA litigation at Case No. CV110002, directing Caltrans to set aside approval of the project, and requiring additional environmental analysis on the project. A new NEPA finding and any other necessary Federal environmental determinations will be issued consistent with this additional analysis. Issued on: November 19, 2014.

(the Line).1 The Line traverses United States Postal Service Zip Codes 07003, 07109, 07104 and 07107. NSR has certified that: (1) No local traffic has moved over the Line for at least two years; (2) no overhead traffic has moved over the Line for at least two years and that overhead traffic, if there were any, could be rerouted over other lines; (3) no formal complaint has been filed by a user of rail service on the Line (or by a state or local government entity acting on behalf of such user) regarding cessation of service over the Line, and no such complaint is either pending with the Surface Transportation Board (Board) or with any U.S. District Court or has been decided in favor of a complainant within the two-year period; and (4) the requirements at 49 CFR 1105.7(c) (environmental report), 49 CFR 1105.11 (transmittal letter), 49 CFR 1105.12 (newspaper publication), and 49 CFR 1152.50(d)(1) (notice to governmental agencies) have been met.

Provided no formal expression of intent to file an offer of financial assistance (OFA) has been received, this exemption will be effective on December 27, 2014, unless stayed pending reconsideration.
