Download as PDF 15050 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 54 / Friday, March 20, 2015 / Notices transaction in violation of proposed Rule 12.14 during what would be the operative delay period.17 The Exchange also represents that waiver of the operative delay would allow it to promptly incorporate Rule 12.14 into the 17d–2 Agreement, further reducing duplicative regulation of Exchange Members that are also members of FINRA. In addition, the Exchange states that waiving the operative delay would provide greater harmonization among Exchange, EDGA, EDGX, and FINRA rules, resulting in less burdensome and more efficient regulatory compliance for Members and facilitating FINRA’s performance of its regulatory functions under the 17d–2 Agreement in a timelier manner. Based on the foregoing, the Commission believes that waiver of the operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. Accordingly, the Commission hereby waives the 30-day operative delay and designates the proposal operative upon filing.18 At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. If the Commission takes such action, the Commission shall institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule should be approved or disapproved. IV. Solicitation of Comments Interested persons are invited to submit written data, views, and arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act. Comments may be submitted by any of the following methods: Electronic Comments • Use the Commission’s Internet comment form (https://www.sec.gov/ rules/sro.shtml); or • Send an email to rule-comments@ sec.gov.

See BZX and BYX Regulatory Circular 15–003, Front Running of Block Transactions, dated February 24, 2015. 18 For purposes only of waiving the 30-day operative delay, the Commission has considered the proposed rule’s impact on efficiency, competition, and capital formation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Effective July 1, 2007, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) assigned, and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) assumed, environmental responsibilities for this project pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327. Caltrans as the assigned National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) agency, in cooperation with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and United States Army Corps of Engineers, will prepare a Supplemental Draft EIS on a proposal for a median-to-median connector between State Route 241 (SR– 241) and the State Route 91 (SR–91) Express Lanes, project in Orange County and Riverside County, California. The proposed median-to-median connector project encompasses 12– ORA–241 (PM 36.1/39.1), 12–ORA–91 (PM 14.7/18.9), and 08–RIV–91 (PM 0.0/ 1.5) for a length of approximately 8.7 miles. Anticipated federal approvals include an FHWA Air Quality Conformity Determination, Biological Opinion Amendment and permits under Section 404 and 401 of the Clean Water Act. Caltrans District 12, in cooperation with the Foothill/Eastern Transportation Corridor Agency (F/ETCA), proposes to construct the median-to-median connector from State Route 241 (SR– 241) to the State Route 91 (SR–91) Express Lanes. The proposed median-tomedian connector is phase 2 of the Eastern Transportation Corridor (ETC) project previously approved in 1994. It will provide improved access between SR–241 and SR–91 and is proposed to be a tolled facility. Caltrans will be the lead agency for the project. The United States Army Corps of Engineers and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service were identified as cooperating agencies in the corresponding 1991 ETC Draft EIS and 1994 ETC Final EIS. The SR–241/SR–91 Express Lane Connector was originally evaluated as a SR–241/SR–91 high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) direct connector in the 1991 ETC Draft EIS and 1994 ETC Final EIS (both of which studied a broader project area with improvements on SR–133, SR–241 and SR–261).

Under the SMC, ETC construction would be completed in one stage with three or more phases. To implement Phase 2 of the ETC project, a Supplemental Draft EIS is being prepared to focus on the eastern portion of the original project and to address changes to environmental conditions and regulatory requirements. Various alternatives were studied in the 1991 ETC Draft EIS and 1994 ETC Final EIS; however, the Supplemental Draft EIS will include a No Build and one Build Alternative for the median-tomedian connector only. Letters describing the proposed action and soliciting comments will be sent to appropriate Federal, State, cooperating agencies, participating agencies, local agencies, and to private organizations and citizens who have previously expressed or are known to have interest in this proposal. Environmental Review of the project is anticipated to occur from 2015 through 2017. A public scoping meeting is not scheduled at this time; should you be interested, please let us know in writing. A public hearing will be held in 2016. Public notice will be given of the time and place of the hearing. The Supplemental Draft EIS will be available for public and agency review and comment prior to the public hearing.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Effective July 1, 2007, the Federal Highway 
Administration (FHWA) assigned, and the California Department of 
Transportation (Caltrans) assumed, environmental responsibilities for 
this project pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327. Caltrans as the assigned 
National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) agency, in cooperation with 
the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and United States Army 
Corps of Engineers, will prepare a Supplemental Draft EIS on a proposal 
for a median-to-median connector between State Route 241 (SR-241) and 
the State Route 91 (SR-91) Express Lanes, project in Orange County and 
Riverside County, California.
    The proposed median-to-median connector project encompasses 12-ORA-
241 (PM 36.1/39.1), 12-ORA-91 (PM 14.7/18.9), and 08-RIV-91 (PM 0.0/
1.5) for a length of approximately 8.7 miles. Anticipated federal 
approvals include an FHWA Air Quality Conformity Determination, 
Biological Opinion Amendment and permits under Section 404 and 401 of 
the Clean Water Act.
    Caltrans District 12, in cooperation with the Foothill/Eastern 
Transportation Corridor Agency (F/ETCA), proposes to construct the 
median-to-median connector from State Route 241 (SR-241) to the State 
Route 91 (SR-91) Express Lanes. The proposed median-to-median connector 
is phase 2 of the Eastern Transportation Corridor (ETC) project 
previously approved in 1994. It will provide improved access between 
SR-241 and SR-91 and is proposed to be a tolled facility. Caltrans will 
be the lead agency for the project. The United States Army Corps of 
Engineers and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service were 
identified as cooperating agencies in the corresponding 1991 ETC Draft 
EIS and 1994 ETC Final EIS.
    The SR-241/SR-91 Express Lane Connector was originally evaluated as 
a SR-241/SR-91 high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) direct connector in the 
1991 ETC Draft EIS and 1994 ETC Final EIS (both of which studied a 
broader project area with improvements on SR-133, SR-241 and SR-261). 
The Systems Management Concept (SMC) for the ETC project proposed that 
the project would be staged, incorporating general purpose traffic and 
eventually HOV lanes, to meet the forecasted demand. Under the SMC, ETC 
construction would be completed in one stage with three or more phases.
    To implement Phase 2 of the ETC project, a Supplemental Draft EIS 
is being prepared to focus on the eastern portion of the original 
project and to address changes to environmental conditions and 
regulatory requirements. Various alternatives were studied in the 1991 
ETC Draft EIS and 1994 ETC Final EIS; however, the Supplemental Draft 
EIS will include a No Build and one Build Alternative for the median-
to-median connector only.
    Letters describing the proposed action and soliciting comments will 
be sent to appropriate Federal, State, cooperating agencies, 
participating agencies, local agencies, and to private organizations 
and citizens who have previously expressed or are known to have 
interest in this proposal. Environmental Review of the project is 
anticipated to occur from 2015 through 2017. A public scoping meeting 
is not scheduled at this time; should you be interested, please let us 
know in writing. A public hearing will be held in 2016. Public notice 
will be given of the time and place of the hearing. The Supplemental 
Draft EIS will be available for public and agency review and comment 
prior to the public hearing.
    To ensure that the full range of issues related to this proposed 
action are addressed and all significant issues identified, comments, 
and suggestions are invited from all interested parties. Comments or 
questions concerning this proposed action and the Supplemental Draft 
EIS should be directed to Caltrans at the address provided above.
