[FR Doc. 2018–02596 Filed 2–8–18; 8:45 am] rescission is based on a lack of available funding for the proposed new road alignments proposed by this project as well as lack of funding and planning approval for the Bi-County Parkway. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kurt Dowden, Chief of Business Operations, Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division, FHWA, 21400 Ridgetop Circle, Sterling, VA 20166, Telephone (571) 434–1598. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA in cooperation with the Virginia Department of Transportation, the National Park Service and impacted counties initiated preparation of a study to identify and study alternative means of transportation for vehicular traffic currently using the two main public roadways (VA Routes 29 and 234) running through the Manassas National Battlefield Park. The preferred alternative would utilize the proposed Bi-County Parkway alignment (as independently proposed by VDOT) with a new roadway located outside but adjacent to the park’s east and north boundary as a full corridor (for Routes 29 and 234) Battlefield Bypass. The NOI for the previously notified EIS is being rescinded due to funding constraints for the proposed new road alignments proposed by the Draft EIS. A lack of funding and withdrawal of local planning approval for the Bi-County Parkway make it impossible to create a complete Battlefield Bypass without this essential roadway segment.

Notice of Intent (NOI) for the preparation of an Environmental Impact 
Statement to study ways to reduce congestion, enhance safety, and 
improve traffic operation in the 14th Street Bridge Corridor 
(Interstate 395) is being rescinded. The NOI was published in the 
Federal Register on July 18, 2006. A draft EIS was released in January 
2012. This rescission is based on a lack of available funding for the 
full corridor proposals and has led to identification of numerous 
individual projects of independent utility.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA in cooperation with the District of 
Columbia Department of Transportation (DDOT), Virginia Department of 
Transportation (VDOT), Arlington County, U.S. Department of Defense and 
National Park Service initiated preparation of an EIS to study actions/
alternatives to reduce congestion, enhance safety, and improve traffic 
operations in the 14th Street Bridge Corridor of Interstate 395. The 
study limits were generally between South Capitol Street in DC and 
Arlington Ridge Road in Arlington County, VA. The NOI was noticed in 
the Federal Register on July 18, 2006.
    The NOI for this EIS is being rescinded due to funding restraints

the proposed actions/alternatives could be provided by DDOT and VDOT 
but they have yet to do so. Comments or questions concerning the 
rescission of this NOI and the EIS should be directed to the FHWA at
