FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Carlos Swonke, Division Director, TxDOT Environmental Affairs Division, 125 East 11th Street, Austin, Texas 78701; Phone (512) 416–2734; email: carlos.swonke@txdot.gov. TxDOT’s normal business hours are 8:00 a.m.– 5:00 p.m. (central time), Monday through Friday. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration is requesting public comment on a request by the City of Tallahassee to change a portion of airport property from aeronautical to non-aeronautical use at the Tallahassee International Airport, Tallahassee City, Florida. The request consists of approximately 317.37 acres of vacant property located on the western side of the airport property boundary. Present fair market value of the property is $157,098 annually. Documents reflecting the Sponsor’s request are available, by appointment only, for inspection at the Tallahassee International Airport and the FAA Airports District Office. DATES: Comments are due on or before June 19, 2019. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00123 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carriedout by TxDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT. TxDOT will prepare an EIS for the proposed construction of a six-lane new location frontage road system for the portion of the proposed Loop 9 Southeast roadway system between United States 67 (US 67) and Interstate 35 East (IH 35E) through Dallas and Ellis Counties, Texas, which is known as ‘‘Segment A.’’ The project is approximately 9.4-miles in length and would pass through the communities of Cedar Hill, Midlothian, Ovilla, Glenn Heights, and Red Oak. The new location frontage road system would include an eastbound and westbound frontage road facility, each consisting of three 12 foot (ft.) lanes, an 8-ft inside shoulder, and an 8 ft. outside shoulder for bicycle accommodations within the rural section of the proposed roadway. The proposed project ROW would include a median (358 to 512 ft. wide) that would accommodate the future construction of an ultimate access-controlled mainlane facility. Construction of the ultimate access-controlled mainlane facility would be based on projected traffic and funding and would require additional environmental analysis prior to construction. The EIS will evaluate a range of build alternatives and a no-build alternative. Possible build alternatives include the three alternatives developed to date to be considered and evaluated in the EIS. In general, from Tar Road to approximately 0.9 miles east of S. Joe Wilson Road, a distance of approximately 2.8 miles, three build alternatives are being considered. East and west of these limits, each alternative shares a common alignment to the project termini. Alternative 1 (2.78 miles), the northernmost alternative, diverges from the common alignment at Tar Road heading east, then immediately turns northeast before crossing S. Joe Wilson Road and converging back with the common alignment. Alternative 2 (2.76 miles), the central most alternative, diverges from the common alignment at Tar Road heading east, then immediately turns northeast; however, this alignment follows a straighter path between Tar Road and S. Joe Wilson Road. After S. Joe Wilson Road, the alternative continues in a northeast direction before converging back with the common alignment. Alternative 3 (2.84 miles), the southernmost alternative, diverges from the common alignment at Tar Road and E:\FR\FM\20MYN1.SGM 20MYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 97 / Monday, May 20, 2019 / Notices the south side of Jackson in Madison County, Tennessee. Those actions grant licenses, permits, and approvals for the project. The FHWA’s Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) provides details on the Selected Alternative for the proposed improvements. DATES: By this notice, FHWA is advising the public of final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). A claim seeking judicial review of the Federal agency actions on the highway project will be barred unless the claim is filed on or before OCTOBER 17, 2019. If the Federal law that authorizes judicial review of a claim provides a time period of less than 150 days for filing such claim, then that shorter time period still applies.
