SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 7, 2011, FHWA published a 
``Notice of Final Federal Agency Actions on Proposed Highway in 
Washington'' in the Federal Register at 76 FR 55459 for the SR 520, I-5

that, subsequent to the earlier FHWA notice, FHWA has taken final 
agency actions within the meaning of 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1) by issuing a 
NEPA re-evaluation for the SR 520 SR 520, I-5 to Medina: Bridge

miles. The Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the project 
was published in January 2011 and the Record of Decision (ROD) was 
issued in August 2011.

Bridge, Roanoke Lid, and other components in the Portage Bay to I-5 
area have been refined, including changes to the configuration of and 
connections to Portage Bay Bridge; refinement of the design of the 
Roanoke Lid; and refinements to the regional shared-use path and local 
active transportation connections. The re-evaluation considering these 
refinements was
