Mehlo, Jr., Planning and Environmental Specialist, FHWA Ohio Division Office; HPD–OH, 200 North High Street, Room 328, Columbus, Ohio 43215–2408, 614–280–6841, Noel.Mehlo@dot.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Effective December 11, 2015 and as amended June 6, 2018, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) assigned, and the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) assumed, environmental responsibilities for this project pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327. Notice is hereby given that ODOT, has taken final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1) by issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for the following highway project in the State of Ohio. The project will improve the existing 0.9-mile section of US 62 between State Route (SR) 43 (Market Avenue) and the bridge over the Middle Branch of Nimishillen Creek. The project will reconstruct and relocate US 62 to the north of the existing alignment to improve sight distance on the eastbound curve and eliminate many driveways directly accessing US 62. The project will create cul-de-sacs at Gibbs Avenue, Rowland Avenue, and Gross Avenue (north side) and convert Maple Avenue to a right-in/right-out access. Most of the properties along the north side of the existing US 62 alignment and several properties along the south side of US 62 around the Gibbs Avenue and St. Elmo Avenue intersections will be removed by the project. The existing signalized intersections at Rowland Avenue and Maple Avenue will be removed. Direct access to (and across) US 62 for the northern and southern neighborhoods will be provided via a new signalized intersection at St. Elmo Avenue that will include street lighting, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant pedestrian cross walks, a median refuge, and pedestrian signal features. The St. Elmo signal will provide access to a two-lane frontage road that will be constructed south of the new US 62 alignment to provide access to the businesses and residences on the south side of US 62 between Gibbs Avenue and St. Elmo Avenue. US 62 will be reconstructed as a fourlane roadway (two lanes in each direction) with additional auxiliary lanes and turn lanes added to provide an acceptable level of service at the new PO 00000 Frm 00108 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 St. Elmo Avenue signalized intersection. In the eastbound direction, an auxiliary lane will begin at the SR 43 entrance ramp and continue east to tie into the existing Harrisburg intersection right turn lane. Heading westbound, an auxiliary lane will travel from just east of the St. Elmo intersection to 30th Street NE, providing direct access from US 62 to 30th Street NE. With the addition of the auxiliary lanes described above, the majority of proposed US 62 within the project limits will resemble a six-lane roadway with three eastbound lanes and three west bound lanes. Center-left turn lanes will also be provided on both eastbound and westbound US 62 at the signalized intersection with St. Elmo Avenue. The west and east ends of the project are designed at a 50 mile per hour (mph) design speed transitioning to a 45 mph design speed between Rowland Avenue and Maple Avenue to accommodate the signalized intersection and pedestrian crossing at St. Elmo Avenue. Various design elements will be incorporated into the project between Rowland Avenue and Maple Avenue including reduced shoulder width, landscaping, and signing to comply with the reduced design speed. A new storm sewer system will be provided to collect the drainage along US 62 and the frontage road to be constructed south of the new US 62 alignment. The project will reconstruct the existing storm water conduit and an outfall to the Middle Branch of Nimishillen Creek south of the existing US 62 roadway embankment and construct a new storm sewer north of US 62 which will also discharge into the Middle Branch of Nimishillen Creek. Based upon the ability to meet the purpose and need of the project, public comments, and impacts to the natural and human environment, ODOT selected Alternative G1–d3a, presented in the March 2017 Feasibility Study, as the Preferred Alternative selected for the July 2018 Environmental Assessment for the project. The Preferred Alternative meets the safety needs of the project and maintains access to US 62 for the nearby neighborhoods and commercial properties. Following the Public Hearing and 30day comment period for the July 2018 Environmental Assessment, the project team conducted further investigation and analyses on the Preferred Alternative (G1–d3a) as part of the public involvement process and consideration of Performance Based Practical Design (PBPD) initiative. Through this exercise, the project team identified design changes that minimize access and right-of-way impacts and E:\FR\FM\27NON1.SGM 27NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 229 / Wednesday, November 27, 2019 / Notices reduce costs to the Preferred Alternative. Sub-alternative G1–d3a–1 incorporates these design changes within the existing project study area footprint and meets the purpose and need for the project to increase safety and decrease congestion while maintaining access to US 62 for the nearby neighborhoods and commercial properties. Based on design changes reflected in Sub-alternative G1–d3a–1 and resulting reductions in anticipated project impacts, no additional assessment and resource agency coordination was warranted for the project. The actions by the Federal agencies, and the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the Environmental Assessment (EA), and the Finding on No Significant Impact (FONSI), approved on January 28, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Effective December 11, 2015 and as amended 
June 6, 2018, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) assigned, and 
the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) assumed, environmental 
responsibilities for this project pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327. Notice is 
hereby given that ODOT, has taken final agency actions subject to 23 
U.S.C. 139(l)(1) by issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for the 
following highway project in the State of Ohio. The project will 
improve the existing 0.9-mile section of US 62 between State Route (SR) 
43 (Market Avenue) and the bridge over the Middle Branch of Nimishillen 
Creek. The project will reconstruct and relocate US 62 to the north of 
the existing alignment to improve sight distance on the eastbound curve 
and eliminate many driveways directly accessing US 62. The project will 
create cul-de-sacs at Gibbs Avenue, Rowland Avenue, and Gross Avenue 
(north side) and convert Maple Avenue to a right-in/right-out access. 
Most of the properties along the north side of the existing US 62 
alignment and several properties along the south side of US 62 around 
the Gibbs Avenue and St. Elmo Avenue intersections will be removed by 
the project. The existing signalized intersections at Rowland Avenue 
and Maple Avenue will be removed. Direct access to (and across) US 62 
for the northern and southern neighborhoods will be provided via a new 
signalized intersection at St. Elmo Avenue that will include street 
lighting, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant pedestrian 
cross walks, a median refuge, and pedestrian signal features. The St. 
Elmo signal will provide access to a two-lane frontage road that will 
be constructed south of the new US 62 alignment to provide access to 
the businesses and residences on the south side of US 62 between Gibbs 
Avenue and St. Elmo Avenue.
    US 62 will be reconstructed as a four-lane roadway (two lanes in 
each direction) with additional auxiliary lanes and turn lanes added to 
provide an acceptable level of service at the new St. Elmo Avenue 
signalized intersection. In the eastbound direction, an auxiliary lane 
will begin at the SR 43 entrance ramp and continue east to tie into the 
existing Harrisburg intersection right turn lane. Heading westbound, an 
auxiliary lane will travel from just east of the St. Elmo intersection 
to 30th Street NE, providing direct access from US 62 to 30th Street 
NE. With the addition of the auxiliary lanes described above, the 
majority of proposed US 62 within the project limits will resemble a 
six-lane roadway with three eastbound lanes and three west bound lanes. 
Center-left turn lanes will also be provided on both eastbound and 
westbound US 62 at the signalized intersection with St. Elmo Avenue.
    The west and east ends of the project are designed at a 50 mile per 
hour (mph) design speed transitioning to a 45 mph design speed between 
Rowland Avenue and Maple Avenue to accommodate the signalized 
intersection and pedestrian crossing at St. Elmo Avenue. Various design 
elements will be incorporated into the project between Rowland Avenue 
and Maple Avenue including reduced shoulder width, landscaping, and 
signing to comply with the reduced design speed.
    A new storm sewer system will be provided to collect the drainage 
along US 62 and the frontage road to be constructed south of the new US 
62 alignment. The project will reconstruct the existing storm water 
conduit and an outfall to the Middle Branch of Nimishillen Creek south 
of the existing US 62 roadway embankment and construct a new storm 
sewer north of US 62 which will also discharge into the Middle Branch 
of Nimishillen Creek.
    Based upon the ability to meet the purpose and need of the project, 
public comments, and impacts to the natural and human environment, ODOT 
selected Alternative G1-d3a, presented in the March 2017 Feasibility 
Study, as the Preferred Alternative selected for the July 2018 
Environmental Assessment for the project. The Preferred Alternative 
meets the safety needs of the project and maintains access to US 62 for 
the nearby neighborhoods and commercial properties.
    Following the Public Hearing and 30-day comment period for the July 
2018 Environmental Assessment, the project team conducted further 
investigation and analyses on the Preferred Alternative (G1-d3a) as 
part of the public involvement process and consideration of Performance 
Based Practical Design (PBPD) initiative. Through this exercise, the 
project team identified design changes that minimize access and right-
of-way impacts and

[[Page 65455]]

reduce costs to the Preferred Alternative. Sub-alternative G1-d3a-1 
incorporates these design changes within the existing project study 
area footprint and meets the purpose and need for the project to 
increase safety and decrease congestion while maintaining access to US 
62 for the nearby neighborhoods and commercial properties. Based on 
design changes reflected in Sub-alternative G1-d3a-1 and resulting 
reductions in anticipated project impacts, no additional assessment and 
resource agency coordination was warranted for the project.
    The actions by the Federal agencies, and the laws under which such 
actions were taken, are described in the Environmental Assessment (EA), 
and the Finding on No Significant Impact (FONSI), approved on January 
28, 2019. The EA, FONSI, and other project records are available by 
contacting ODOT at the address provided above. The ODOT EA, and FONSI
