ACTION: Notice of limitation on claims for Judicial review of actions by FHWA. AGENCY: The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is issuing this notice to announce actions taken by FHWA that are final. This notice announces to the public that FHWA, as the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) lead agency, circulated a Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Section De Minimis Determination (October 19, 2018) for the US 50/South Shore Community Revitalization Project (project) and issued a Record of Decision (ROD) (August 2, 2019). The actions relate to a proposed highway realignment project on US Highway 50 (US 50) in the City of South Lake Tahoe, California and Stateline, Nevada. The project would realign US 50 in the Stateline casino corridor area (postmile 79.00 to postmile 80.44) and convert the existing US 50 roadway, between a location southwest of Pioneer Trail in the City of South Lake Tahoe, California and Lake Parkway in Stateline, Nevada, into a two-lane local street (one travel lane in each direction). Realigned US 50 would be four lanes (two travel lanes in each direction) with left-turn pockets at intersections; it would begin at a relocated Pioneer Trail intersection to the west of the existing intersection, and proceed south along existing Moss and Echo Roads. The realigned highway would then turn east onto the Montreal Road alignment, passing behind (southeast of) the Heavenly Village Center shopping complex, and continuing along the existing Montreal Road and Lake Parkway alignments. The proposed action includes a new, two-lane roundabout at the intersection of US 50 and Lake Parkway in Stateline, Nevada. The affected segment of existing US 50 is approximately 1.1 miles long. The existing right-of-way of the segment of US 50 between Pioneer Trail and Lake Parkway—the new ‘‘Main Street’’—would be relinquished to the City of South Lake Tahoe in California, and Douglas County in Nevada. Realigned US 50 would become California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) right-of-way. Between Park Avenue and Lake Parkway, the new ‘‘Main Street’’ would SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\23AUN1.SGM 23AUN1 jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES 44350 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 164 / Friday, August 23, 2019 / Notices be reduced to one travel lane in each direction, with landscaped medians, and turn pockets at major intersections and driveways. Expanded sidewalks, a Class IV bicycle route (i.e., cycle track), and a transit circulator are proposed to be implemented in this section within the tourist core to improve pedestrian safety and encourage use of alternative transportation modes. A pedestrian bridge would be constructed over realigned US 50 approximately 250 feet south of the proposed new intersection at the Harrah’s entrance driveway near the California/Nevada state line connecting Van Sickle Bi-State Park to the Stateline area. The proposed action would result in displacing residents and would construct replacement housing for those residents before removing existing housing and constructing the roadway improvements in California so that residents displaced by the project may be relocated to the newly constructed housing if they so choose during the relocation process. The action taken by FHWA includes approval of the project. DATES: By this notice, the 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 ll. 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.

TRPA is the lead agency for the TRPA EIS pursuant to their Rules of Procedure. The project proposes to realign US 50 to the southeast of existing US 50 from just west of the Pioneer Trail intersection in California to Lake Parkway in Nevada; reduce the existing right-of-way of the segment of US 50 between Pioneer Trail and Lake Parkway—the new ‘‘Main Street’’—to one travel lane in each direction, with landscaped medians, and new and/or upgraded bicycle lanes and sidewalks throughout the project site; and construct replacement housing for dislocated residents in the immediate vicinity.

Notice of Final Federal Agency Actions on Proposed Highway 
Realignment in California and Nevada

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of limitation on claims for Judicial review of actions 
by FHWA.

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

SUMMARY: The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is issuing this 
notice to announce actions taken by FHWA that are final. This notice 
announces to the public that FHWA, as the National Environmental Policy 
Act (NEPA) lead agency, circulated a Final Environmental Impact 
Statement (EIS) and Section De Minimis Determination (October 19, 2018) 
for the US 50/South Shore Community Revitalization Project (project) 
and issued a Record of Decision (ROD) (August 2, 2019). The actions 
relate to a proposed highway realignment project on US Highway 50 (US 
50) in the City of South Lake Tahoe, California and Stateline, Nevada.
    The project would realign US 50 in the Stateline casino corridor 
area (postmile 79.00 to postmile 80.44) and convert the existing US 50 
roadway, between a location southwest of Pioneer Trail in the City of 
South Lake Tahoe, California and Lake Parkway in Stateline, Nevada, 
into a two[hyphen]lane local street (one travel lane in each 
direction). Realigned US 50 would be four lanes (two travel lanes in 
each direction) with left-turn pockets at intersections; it would begin 
at a relocated Pioneer Trail intersection to the west of the existing 
intersection, and proceed south along existing Moss and Echo Roads. The 
realigned highway would then turn east onto the Montreal Road 
alignment, passing behind (southeast of) the Heavenly Village Center 
shopping complex, and continuing along the existing Montreal Road and 
Lake Parkway alignments. The proposed action includes a new, two-lane 
roundabout at the intersection of US 50 and Lake Parkway in Stateline, 
Nevada. The affected segment of existing US 50 is approximately 1.1 
miles long.
    The existing right-of-way of the segment of US 50 between Pioneer 
Trail and Lake Parkway--the new ``Main Street''--would be relinquished 
to the City of South Lake Tahoe in California, and Douglas County in 
Nevada. Realigned US 50 would become California Department of 
Transportation (Caltrans) and Nevada Department of Transportation 
(NDOT) right-of-way.
    Between Park Avenue and Lake Parkway, the new ``Main Street'' would

be reduced to one travel lane in each direction, with landscaped 
medians, and turn pockets at major intersections and driveways. 
Expanded sidewalks, a Class IV bicycle route (i.e., cycle track), and a 
transit circulator are proposed to be implemented in this section 
within the tourist core to improve pedestrian safety and encourage use 
of alternative transportation modes. A pedestrian bridge would be 
constructed over realigned US 50 approximately 250 feet south of the 
proposed new intersection at the Harrah's entrance driveway near the 
California/Nevada state line connecting Van Sickle Bi-State Park to the 
Stateline area.
    The proposed action would result in displacing residents and would 
construct replacement housing for those residents before removing 
existing housing and constructing the roadway improvements in 
California so that residents displaced by the project may be relocated 
to the newly constructed housing if they so choose during the 
relocation process.
    The action taken by FHWA includes approval of the project.

DATES: By this notice, the 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 __. 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.
