ACTION: Revised 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 4(f) 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 action taken by FHWA includes approval of the project. This notice supersedes a notice published on August 23, 2019, which inadvertently failed to include a date certain in the following paragraph. The date below applies to the actions taken by FHWA with regard to 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 January 31, 2020. 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. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For FHWA: Scott McHenry, Sr. Transportation Engineer, Project Delivery Team, Federal Highway Administration, 650 Capitol Mall, Suite 4–100, Sacramento, California 95814, (916) 498–5854, or email: scott.mchenry@dot.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR)/EIS/ EIS is a joint document prepared by the Tahoe Transportation District (TTD), Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA), and FHWA and is subject to state and federal environmental review requirements. FHWA, TTD, and TRPA jointly prepared the Final EIR/EIS/EIS pursuant to the requirements of NEPA, the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), and the Tahoe Regional Planning Compact (Pub. L. 96–551) and 1980 revision (Compact), Code of Ordinances, and Rules of Procedure. TTD is the lead agency under CEQA. FHWA is the lead agency under NEPA. TRPA is the lead agency for the TRPA EIS pursuant to their Rules of Procedure. 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 E:\FR\FM\03SEN1.SGM 03SEN1 khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 170 / Tuesday, September 3, 2019 / Notices (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 actions taken by the Federal agencies, and the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the Final EIR/EIS/EIS for the project, approved on November 9, 2018 by the TTD Board and on November 15, 2018 by the TRPA Governing Board of Directors, and in the FHWA Record of Decision (ROD), issued on August 2, 2019, and in other documents in the FHWA project records.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR)/
EIS/EIS is a joint document prepared by the Tahoe Transportation 
District (TTD), Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA), and FHWA and is 
subject to state and federal environmental review requirements. FHWA, 
TTD, and TRPA jointly prepared the Final EIR/EIS/EIS pursuant to the 
requirements of NEPA, the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), 
and the Tahoe Regional Planning Compact (Pub. L. 96-551) and 1980 
revision (Compact), Code of Ordinances, and Rules of Procedure. TTD is 
the lead agency under CEQA. FHWA is the lead agency under NEPA. TRPA is 
the lead agency for the TRPA EIS pursuant to their Rules of Procedure.
    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

    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 actions taken by the Federal agencies, and the laws under which 
such actions were taken, are described in the Final EIR/EIS/EIS for the 
project, approved on November 9, 2018 by the TTD Board and on November
