    The projects subject to this notice are:
    1. SH 9 Iron Springs EA and FONSI. Project Location: Just south of 
Frisco, CO. Project Reference Number: C0091-041. Project Overview: A 
1.3-mile stretch of SH 9, between mileposts 93 and 95, will be 
realigned, rather than widened on the existing alignment. This will 
provide a four-lane roadway while removing a tight, compound curve 
(known as Leslie's Curve) and moving the highway away from Dillon 
Reservoir, a drinking water source. A portion of the old roadway 
alignment will be turned into a bike path. Project Purpose: The purpose 
is to improve transportation along SH 9 by decreasing travel time, 
improving safety, and supporting the transportation needs of local and 
regional travelers while minimizing impacts to the surrounding 
environment and communities between the towns of Frisco and 
Breckenridge. Signed NEPA Documents and Permits: EA signed on May 6, 
2014 and FONSI on December 18, 2014. https://www.codot.gov/projects/hwy9f2b/sh-9-iron-springs-alignment-environmental-assessment.
    2. Federal Blvd., 7th to Howard EA and FONSI. Project Location: 
Denver, CO. Project Reference Number: NHPP 2873-172. Project Overview: 
This project would widen Federal Boulevard to provide a third 
northbound lane and standard (11 foot) lane widths. Sidewalks will be 
brought up to Americans with Disabilities Act standards and existing 
crosswalks will be upgraded with new traffic and pedestrian signals. 
Project Purpose: The purpose of the project is to improve safety for 
all modes of travel (e.g., personal vehicles, transit vehicles, and 
bicycles as well as foot traffic), improve traffic operations for all 
traffic modes, reduce existing and future northbound congestion, and 
enhance multi-modal connectivity. Signed NEPA Documents and Permits: EA 
signed on October 8, 2014 and FONSI on January 15, 2015. https://www.denvergov.org/infrastructure/policyandplanning/currentprojects/federalboulevard/tabid/442758/default.aspx and https://www.codot.gov/projects/federalea7thtohoward.
    3. US 50 West, Purcell Blvd. to Wills Blvd., and McCulloch Blvd. 
Intersection Improvements EA and FONSI. Project Location: Pueblo, CO. 
Project Reference Number: STA 050A-022. Project Overview: Highway 
improvements include adding an additional 3.4-mile eastbound lane to US 
50 between Purcell Blvd. and Wills Blvd. Intersection improvements 
include turn lanes, and deceleration and acceleration lanes. Project 
Purpose: The purpose is to reduce congestion and improve safety. Signed 
NEPA Documents and Permits: EA signed on June 3, 2014 and FONSI on

    4. US 24 West EA and FONSI. Project Location: Colorado Springs, CO. 
Project Reference Number: NH 0242-040. Project Overview: The project 
encompasses a 4-mile segment of US 24 from Interstate 25 to west of the 
Manitou Avenue interchange. It includes additional lanes in 
approximately 1 mile of the project area, bridge replacements on US 24 
and cross streets, replacing two intersections with interchanges, 
closing some access points including replacing one intersection with an 
overpass, improvements to sidewalks on the north-south cross streets at 
all intersections and interchanges, and extending the Midland Trail. 
Project Purpose: The purpose is to reduce congestion problems for 
travelers today and through the year 2035; improve mobility for local 
trips within the US 24 corridor and regional trips through the US 24 
corridor; and improve connectivity to the multiple destinations 
accessible from the US 24 corridor. Signed NEPA Documents and Permits: 
EA signed on May 16, 2012 and FONSI on October 2, 2014. https://www.codot.gov/projects/us24west.
    5. US 287 at Lamar Reliever Route EA and FONSI. Project Location: 
Lamar, CO. Project Reference Number: C2871-026. Project Overview: The 
project will relocate US 287 and US 50 from downtown Lamar to a new 
alignment, known as the reliever route, approximately one mile east of 
Lamar. The new highway will serve as an alternate route around downtown 
Lamar for non-stop regional truck and automobile traffic. Project 
Purpose: The purpose is to reduce conflicts between local and through-
traffic, improve safety, and meet local, regional, and national travel 
demands on US 287 and US 50 through Lamar. Signed NEPA Documents and 
Permits: EA signed on August 15, 2013 and FONSI on November 10, 2014.

    6. US 550/US 160 South Connection SEIS and ROD. Project Location: 
Durango, CO. Project Reference Number: FC-NH(CX)162-2(048). Project 
Overview: The project will realign a 1.5-mile portion of US 550 to 
connect with an interchange on US 160 and widen the road to four lanes. 
The SEIS focused on this portion of the original 2006 US 160 Durango to 
Bayfield EIS project, and looked at both previous and new alternatives 
developed to reduce impacts to historic properties identified after the 
completion of the previous ROD. Project Purpose: The purpose is to 
increase travel efficiency/capacity to meet current and future needs, 
improve safety for the traveling public by reducing the number and 
severity of crashes, and control access for safety and mobility 
improvements. Original FEIS signed May 12, 2006, ROD signed November 7,
