ACTION: The FHWA, as the Federal Lead Agency, and the ADOT, as the Local Project Sponsor, are issuing this notice to advise the public of our intention to prepare a Tier 1 EIS for the Sonoran Corridor between I–19 and I–10 south of the Tucson International Airport in Pima County, Arizona. The Tier 1 EIS will assess the potential social, economic, and natural environmental impacts of a transportation facility in the designated Sonoran Corridor across a reasonable range of corridor alternatives, including a ‘‘No Build’’ alternative. The Tier 1 EIS will be prepared in accordance with regulations implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and provisions of Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act).

PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The Tier 1 EIS will ensure, to the fullest extent possible, all environmental investigations, reviews, and consultations are coordinated as a single process, and compliance with all applicable environmental requirements be reflected in the environmental document. The Sonoran Corridor is a critical transportation facility that could help diversify, support, and connect the economy of Southern Arizona, and the entire State of Arizona. The intent of the Sonoran Corridor is to help alleviate traffic and improve the movement of people, goods, and services by reducing travel distances, and eliminate the need for vehicles to travel through the existing I–10 and I–19 traffic interchange near downtown Tucson. On December 4, 2015, the President signed into law the FAST Act, which is a 5year legislation that provides long term funding certainty for planning efforts and investments that will help improve the Nation’s surface transportation infrastructure. The FAST Act formally designates the Sonoran Corridor as a high-priority corridor, thus reinforcing the need to conduct a study for a future transportation facility between I–10 and I–19 south of Tucson International Airport. The FHWA and ADOT will undertake a scoping process for the Sonoran Corridor that will allow the public and interested agencies to comment on the scope of the environmental review process. The FHWA and ADOT will invite all interested individuals, organizations, public agencies, and Native American Tribes to comment on the scope of the Tier 1, including the purpose and need, alternatives to be studied, impacts to be evaluated, and evaluation methods to be used. The formal scoping period is anticipated to extend from May 12, 2017 to July 15, 2017. Two public scoping meetings and one agency scoping meeting for Federal, State, regional and local resource and regulatory agencies will be held during the formal scoping period. In addition, cooperating and participating agency invitation letters will be sent to agencies that have jurisdiction or may have an interest in the Sonoran Corridor. The buildings used for the meetings are accessible to persons with disabilities. Any person who requires special assistance, such as a language interpreter, should contact the Sonoran Corridor Tier 1 EIS Study Team at telephone 855–712–8530 or via email at Sonorancorridor@azdot.gov at least 48 hours before the meeting. Written comments on the scope of the Tier 1 EIS should be mailed to: Sonoran Corridor Tier 1 EIS Study Team, c/o ADOT Communications, 1655 West E:\FR\FM\12MYN1.SGM 12MYN1

[Docket No. FD 36109]


Grupo M[eacute]xico, S.A.B. de C.V. and GM[eacute]xico 
Transportes, S.A. de C.V.--Control Exemption--Florida East Coast 
Holdings Corp.

    GM[eacute]xico Transportes, S.A. de C.V. (GM[eacute]xico 
Transportes), a non-carrier holding company, has filed a verified 
notice of exemption pursuant to 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(2) to control Florida 
East Coast Railway, L.L.C. (FECR), a Class II rail carrier operating in 
the state of Florida, and Texas Pacifico Transportation, Ltd. 
(Pacifico), a Class III rail carrier operating in the state of Texas. 
In addition, GM[eacute]xico Transportes filed an amendment to its 
verified notice of exemption to identify and encompass its parent 
company, Grupo M[eacute]xico, S.A.B. de C.V. (Grupo M[eacute]xico), 
also a non-carrier holding company,\1\ and to identify Copper Basin 
Railway, Inc. (Copper Basin), a Class III rail carrier operating in the 
state of Arizona, as an additional carrier which Grupo M[eacute]xico 
controls.\2\ Control of these three rail carriers by Grupo 
M[eacute]xico and GM[eacute]xico Transportes will be effected upon the 
merger of GMXT Florida Merger Sub, Inc. (GMXT Merger Sub), a non-
carrier subsidiary of GM[eacute]xico Transportes, with and into Florida 
East Coast Holdings Corp. (FEC Holdings), a non-carrier currently 
controlling FECR.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ GM[eacute]xico Transportes filed the verified notice of 
exemption and the amendment to that notice identifying itself as the 
entity obtaining Board authority in this proceeding. However, 
because Grupo M[eacute]xico is the ultimate parent company of 
GM[eacute]xico Transportes, and because Grupo M[eacute]xico is the 
entity in ultimate control of both Pacifico and Copper Basin, this 
proceeding has been recaptioned to include Grupo M[eacute]xico.
    \2\ It appears that Grupo M[eacute]xico did not obtain Board 
authority to have common control of more than one rail carrier when 
it acquired Copper Basin. If that is the case, and if such authority 
was required, the Board expects Grupo M[eacute]xico to promptly 
submit an appropriate filing for authorization of that common 
control.
    \3\ On April 10, 2017, GM[eacute]xico Transportes and FEC 
Holdings jointly filed a motion for protective order under 49 CFR 
1104.14(b), which will be addressed in a separate decision.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The transaction may be consummated on or after May 28, 2017, the 
effective date of the exemption.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Because GM[eacute]xico Transportes amended its verified 
notice of exemption on April 28, 2017, that date is the official 
filing date and the basis for all subsequent dates.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Grupo M[eacute]xico and GM[eacute]xico Transportes represent that: 
(1) The carriers that are the subject of this notice do not connect 
with each other; (2) the control transaction is not a part of a series 
of anticipated transactions that would result in such a connection; and 
(3) the transaction does not involve a Class I carrier. Therefore, the 
transaction is exempt from the prior approval requirements of 49 U.S.C. 
11323. See 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(2).
    Under 49 U.S.C. 10502(g), the Board may not use its exemption 
authority to relieve a rail carrier of its statutory obligation to 
protect the interests of its employees. Because the transaction 
involves one Class II rail carrier and two Class III rail carriers, the 
transaction is subject to the labor protection requirements of 49 
U.S.C. 11326(b) and Wisconsin Central Ltd.--Acquisition Exemption--
Lines of Union Pacific Railroad, 2 S.T.B. 218 (1997).
    If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, 
the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption 
under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a
