The FAA has determined that these maps for San Antonio International Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements. This determination is effective on January 12, 2015. FAA’s determination on an airport operator’s noise exposure maps is limited to a finding that the maps were developed in accordance with the procedures contained in appendix A of FAR Part 150. Such determination does not constitute approval of the applicant’s data, information or plans, or constitute a commitment to approve a noise compatibility program or to fund the implementation of that program. If questions arise concerning the precise relationship of specific properties to noise exposure contours depicted on a noise exposure map submitted under section 47503 of the Act, it should be noted that the FAA is not involved in any way in determining the relative locations of specific properties with regard to the depicted noise contours, or in interpreting the noise exposure maps to resolve questions concerning, for example, which properties should be covered by the provisions of section 47506 of the Act. These functions are inseparable from the ultimate land use control and planning responsibilities of local government. These local responsibilities are not changed in any way under Part 150 or through FAA’s review of noise exposure maps. Therefore, the responsibility for the detailed overlaying of noise exposure contours onto the map depicting properties on the surface rests exclusively with the airport operator that submitted those maps, or with those public agencies and planning agencies with which consultation is required under section 47503 of the Act. The FAA has relied on the certification by the airport operator, under section 150.21 of FAR Part 150, that the statutorily required consultation has been accomplished. The FAA has formally received the noise compatibility program for San Antonio International Airport, also effective on January 12, 2015. Preliminary review of the submitted material indicates that it conforms to the requirements for the submittal of noise compatibility programs, but that further review will be necessary prior to approval or disapproval of the program. The formal review period, limited by law to a maximum of 180 days, will be completed on or before July 11, 2015. The FAA’s detailed evaluation will be conducted under the provisions of 14 CFR part 150, section 150.33. The primary considerations in the VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:09 Jan 21, 2015 Jkt 235001 evaluation process are whether the proposed measures may reduce the level of aviation safety, create an undue burden on interstate or foreign commerce, or be reasonably consistent with obtaining the goal of reducing existing non-compatible land uses and preventing the introduction of additional non-compatible land uses. Interested persons are invited to comment on the proposed program with specific reference to these factors. All comments, other than those properly addressed to local land use authorities, will be considered by the FAA to the extent practicable. Copies of the noise exposure maps, the FAA’s evaluation of the maps, and the proposed noise compatibility program are available for examination at the following locations: Federal Aviation Administration, Texas Airports Development Office, 2601 Meacham Boulevard, Fort Worth, Texas 76137 City of San Antonio Aviation Department, 9800 Airport Boulevard, San Antonio, Texas 78216 Questions may be directed to the individual named above under the heading, FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

The purpose of the project is to re-evaluate alternatives due to decertification of the Mississippi River levees in the portion near Gulfport. The anticipated project termini for this Supplemental EIS are from approximately one mile west of Carman Road to just east of TR 111 in Henderson County, a study area of approximately 8.2 miles.

SUMMARY: The FHWA is issuing this notice to advise the public that a 
Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) will be prepared for 
the proposed widening and reconstruction of US 34 in Henderson County, 
Illinois.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the Illinois 
Department of Transportation (IDOT), will prepare a Supplemental EIS 
for the proposed widening and reconstruction of US 34 in Henderson 
County. The original EIS study limits were Carman Road (east of the 
Village of Gulfport) to the Village of Monmouth, Illinois, a total 
distance of approximately 24.8 miles, for which the Record of Decision 
was issued on August 18, 2003. The purpose of the project is to re-
evaluate alternatives due to decertification of the Mississippi River 
levees in the portion near Gulfport. The anticipated project termini 
for this Supplemental EIS are from approximately one mile west of 
Carman Road to just east of TR 111 in Henderson County, a study area of 
approximately 8.2 miles.
    The Supplemental EIS will evaluate alternatives including a No 
Action Alternative and various Build Alternatives. The Supplemental EIS 
will develop and evaluate a range of reasonable alternatives with an 
ultimate outcome of a single preferred alternative that addresses the 
type of facility to be

implemented, roadway horizontal and vertical alignment, and preliminary 
interchange/intersection geometrics. Engineering and environmental 
conditions will be evaluated in order to determine an alignment that 
meets the transportation needs of the region while minimizing the 
impacts to the environment.
    The Supplemental EIS will evaluate potential effects on the social, 
economic, natural and physical environments, including land use and 
socioeconomic conditions, ecological resources, and cultural resources. 
Potentially affected resources include: Agricultural, residential and 
commercial properties; streams, wetlands and floodplains; forested 
areas and potentially historic properties. Preliminary measures to 
minimize harm, estimates of probable construction costs and estimated 
right-of-way requirements will be developed as part of this study.
    Public involvement is a critical component of the National 
Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) project development process and will 
occur throughout the development of the environmental document. This 
document will be made available for review by federal and state 
resource agencies and the public. Public informational meetings, local 
government meetings, property owner meetings and other community 
organization meetings will provide opportunities for public input. A 
public hearing will be held at the time the Draft Supplemental EIS is 
made available for public and agency review and comment. Public notice 
will be given of the time and place of public meetings and hearings. 
Comments or questions regarding this proposed action and the 
Supplemental EIS are invited from all interested parties and should be 
directed to the FHWA or the IDOT at the addresses provided above.
