SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Effective July 1, 2007, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) assigned, and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) assumed, SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00172 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62243 environmental responsibilities for this project pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327. Notice is hereby given that Caltrans, has taken final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1) by issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for the following highway project in the State of California: State Route 1 (SR 1) Gleason Beach Roadway Realignment Project: Caltrans proposes to realign SR 1 at Gleason Beach in Sonoma County to maintain SR 1, which has been damaged by multiple erosive forces including severe storms in 1996 and later years. The project would construct a two-lane roadway and a bridge spanning Scotty Creek along a new alignment eastward and inland of the current alignment between post miles (PMs) 15.1 and 15.7 of SR 1 in Sonoma County, CA. The purpose of this project is to protect SR 1 from coastal erosion while maintaining SR 1’s long-term regional and local connectivity for the surrounding communities. The environmental effects of the Gleason Beach Project are evaluated and described in the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR)/Environmental Assessment (EA), a joint document pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act and the National Environmental Policy Act. Key issues identified in the Final EIR/EA include impacts to biological resources, aquatic (wetland) resources, water quality and storm water runoff, geology/ seismicity, paleontology, cultural resources, visual/aesthetics, residential acquisition, and temporary construction effects. Measures to avoid, minimize, and mitigate adverse environmental effects are included in the Environmental Commitments Record in the Final EIR/EA. The Final EIR/EA identified Alternative 19A as the preferred alternative and Caltrans has determined that Alternative 19A will have no significant impacts on the human environment. The actions by the Federal agencies, and the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the Final EIR/EA for the project, approved on June 30, 2016, and in the Caltrans Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) also issued on June 30, 2016, and in other documents in the Caltrans project records. The Final EIR/ EA, FONSI, and other project records are available by contacting Caltrans at the address provided above. The Caltrans FEIR/EA and FONSI can be viewed and downloaded from the project Web site at http:// www.dot.ca.gov/dist4/envdocs.html, or viewed at public libraries in the project area (Sonoma County).
