SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Effective July 1, 2007, FHWA assigned, Caltrans assumed, environmental responsibilities for this project pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327. Notice is hereby given that the Caltrans, have 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 California: San Jose Creek Bridge Replacement Project on U.S. Route 101 at postmile 21.6, within the City of Goleta, County of Santa Barbara, California. Caltrans proposes to replace the existing San Jose Creek Bridge on U.S. route 101 with a new bridge structure. The replacement of the existing bridge is necessary to remove all traces of alkali-silica reactions present in the concrete components of the existing bridge. The presence of alkali-silica reaction progressively compromises the structural integrity of concrete components. The project will also involve construction of a new bridge structure, roadway repaving, guardrail improvements, vegetation removal and habitat restoration within existing Caltrans right-of-way. Temporary construction easements are required for completion of the project. Federal EFIS ID 05–160000073.

Notice of Final Federal Agency Actions on a Proposed Highway 
Project in Wisconsin

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), U.S. Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

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

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

SUMMARY: This notice announces actions taken by the FHWA that are 
final. The actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws 
relate to a proposed highway project, the South Bridge Connector, in 
Brown County, Wisconsin. Those actions grant approvals for the project.

DATES: A claim seeking judicial review of the Federal agency actions on 
the proposed highway project will be barred unless the claim is filed 
on or before March 29, 2021. 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: Glenn Fulkerson, Division 
Administrator, FHWA, 525 Junction Road, Suite 8000, Madison, Wisconsin 
53717; telephone: (608) 829-7500. The FHWA Wisconsin Division's normal 
office hours are 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Central time. For the Wisconsin 
Department of Transportation (WisDOT): Scott Lawry, Director, Bureau of 
Technical Services, WisDOT, 4822 Madison Yards Way, 5th Floor, Madison, 
Wisconsin 53705; telephone: (608) 266-2186. WisDOT's normal office 
hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central time.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that FHWA has taken 
final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1) by issuing 
approvals for the following highway project: The South Bridge Connector 
in Brown County, Wisconsin. The purpose of the project is to identify 
the most appropriate improvements for addressing existing east-west 
transportation demand and demand that will be generated by the planned 
development in the southern portion of the Green Bay metropolitan area. 
The selected alternative is a corridor approximately 6 miles long and 
500 feet wide, beginning at the intersection of County EB (Packerland 
Drive) and County F in the Town of Lawrence, and ending at County X/GV 
(Monroe Road) in the Town of Ledgeview. From its western terminus, the 
County EB/F intersection, the route travels on new alignment to connect 
to a new full-access interchange on I-41. The route continues east on 
Southbridge Road and Red Maple Road, crosses the Fox River, and 
continues along Rockland Road. At the intersection of Rockland Road and 
County PP (South Broadway), the route continues northeast on new 
alignment and terminates at the intersection of County X and County GV 
(Monroe Road). The recently-completed environmental study for this 
project is a Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), and the 
selected alternative only approves the general (corridor) location for 
future improvements. The Lead Agencies will need to prepare Tier 2 
design and environmental studies before any construction can occur. 
Even though the Tier 1 Final EIS and Record of Decision (ROD) do not 
identify a specific final design or build alternative, the current 
conceptual design for the selected corridor includes a four-lane 
divided arterial on a combination of new and existing alignment with

[[Page 68953]]

shared-use path or sidewalk, a new interchange with I-41 at Southbridge 
Road, a new bridge over the Fox River, and reconstruction of the County 
F interchange with I-41.
    The actions by FHWA on this project, and the laws under which such 
actions were taken, are described in the combined Tier 1 Final EIS and 
ROD, approved on October 16, 2020, and in other documents in the 
project file. The Lead Agencies prepared the combined Tier 1 Final EIS 
and ROD as a single document pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 139(n)(2). The Tier 
1 Final EIS and ROD and other documents related to project approvals 
are available by contacting FHWA or WisDOT at the addresses provided 
above. The combined Tier 1 Final EIS and ROD and other project 
documents can be viewed and downloaded on the project website: https://www.browncountywi.gov/departments/planning-and-land-services/planning/south-bridge-connector/.
