Federal Highway Administration


Environmental Impact Statement: Alameda and Contra Costa 
Counties, CA

agency: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

action: Notice of intent.


summary: The FHWA is issuing this notice to advise the public that an 
Environmental Impact Statement will be prepared for a proposed 
transportation project in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, 

for further information contact: John R. Schultz, Chief, District 
Operations-A, Federal Highway Administration, 980 9th Street, suite 
400, Sacramento, California, 95814-2724, 916/551-1314.

supplementary information: The FHWA, in cooperation with the California 
Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the California Toll Road 
Company (CTRC) will prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on 
a proposal to construct a toll-operated highway facility in a corridor 
between Route 4 and Route 84 in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, a 
distance of approximately 48-kilometers (30 miles). The proposed 
facility would consist generally of a divided limited access roadway. 
It is anticipated that majority of the roadway will be located on new 
alignment. Major roadways in the area are presently operating at peak 
hour levels of service (LOS) D to F, and are expected to decline to LOS 
F before the year 2010. There are also problems with the regional 
movement of freight on local roads because of the lack of regional 
transportation facilities.
    Alternatives under consideration are:
    (1) The ``No-Build'' Alternative;
    (2) A Transportation Systems Management/Transportation Demand 
Management Alternative providing incremental improvements;
    (3) A Mass Transit Alternative providing transit improvements, 
including buses and rail modes;
    (4) A divided limited access toll road in a 48-kilometer (30 miles) 
corridor from the I-680/Route 84 Interchange southwest of the City of 
Livermore to Route 4 near Antioch; and
    (5) A freeway in the same 48-kilometer (30-mile) corridor. In 
addition to the alternatives noted above, any other alternatives 
identified in the scoping process meetings will be studied and 
considered during the project development stage.
    Letters describing the proposed action and soliciting comments were 
sent to the appropriate Federal, State and local agencies, and to 
private organizations and citizens who have expressed or are known to 
have interest in this proposal. Public scoping and community 
participation meetings will be held on May 10, 1994 at 6 p.m. at the 
Tracy Community Center, 300 East 10th Street, Tracy; on May 11, 1994 at 
5 p.m. at the Brentwood Lions Club, 3700 Walnut Boulevard, Brentwood 
and; at the Triad Corporation Cafeteria at 3055 Triad Drive, Livermore, 
on May 12, 1994 at 5 p.m. An agency scoping meeting is scheduled at the 
Contra Costa Transportation Authority, Pacific Plaza Bldg., 1340 Treat 
Blvd., Suite 150, Walnut Creek at 10 a.m. May 12, 1994. The Public 
Participation Program for this study includes additional community 
information meetings and a Public Hearing.
    To ensure that the full range of issues related to this proposed 
action are addressed and all significant issues identified, comments 
and suggestions are invited from all interested parties.
    Comments or questions concerning this proposed action and the 
Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) should be directed to the FHWA at 
the address provided above.
