Re-Evaluation With Respect to the Willits Bypass Project, 
Willits, CA, and the Construction of the Schmidbauer Driveway

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: This notice announces that Federal actions taken by the 
California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) pursuant to its 
assigned responsibilities under 23 U.S.C. 327 are final within the 
meaning of 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). FHWA, on behalf of Caltrans, is issuing 
this notice to announce that, with respect to the State Route 101 
Willits Bypass Project in Willits (Mendocino County), California, a Re-
evaluation was prepared in order to determine whether the existing 
Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) is still valid. Based upon 
the analyses contained in the Re-evaluation, Caltrans has made the 
determination that the existing FEIS is still valid and the preparation 
of a SEIS is not warranted and will therefore not be undertaken.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Caltrans conducted a Re-evaluation of the 
Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) issued by FHWA in October 
2006 (a Record of Decision for which was posted in the Federal Register 
in January 2007). The Re-evaluation was completed in March 2014. Due to 
the construction of the Haehl Creek Interchange and the Willits Bypass 
project, the existing access route to the Schmidbauer parcel and 
residence from the north that crosses through State of California 
access controlled right of way, cannot continue to be used. Caltrans is 
proposing to re-construct a new driveway segment that will provide 
access to the Schmidbauer parcel and residence from the Willits Bypass 
Haehl Creek interchange through an existing access opening.
    The purpose of the Re-evaluation was to examine potential 
environmental impacts resulting from the proposed changes to the 
Willits Bypass Project and in order to determine whether the FEIS was 
still valid or whether a SEIS should be prepared in accordance with 40 
CFR 1502.9(c). Based upon the Re-evaluation, Caltrans made the 
determination that preparation of a SEIS was not warranted and would 
not be undertaken (Caltrans made the determination in March 2014).
    A claim seeking judicial review of the March 2014 Federal agency 
determination to not undertake a SEIS will be barred if the claim is 
not filed within 150 days of the initial publication of this notice in 
the Federal Register.
    Copies of the Re-evaluation is available for review by appointment 
only at the following locations. Please call to make arrangements for 
viewing:
    Caltrans, District 3 Office, 703 B Street, Marysville, CA 95901, 
530-741-4393, and Caltrans, District 3 Office, 2379 Gateway Oaks Drive,
