Notice To Rescind a Notice of Intent and Draft Environmental

Realignment Study; Pinal and Gila Counties, Arizona.

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

ACTION: Notice to rescind a Notice of Intent and Draft Environmental 
Impact Statement.

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

SUMMARY: The FHWA is issuing this notice to advise the public that FHWA 
and the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) will not prepare an 
Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed improvements or 
rerouting of US Highway (US) 60 in Pinal and Gila counties, Arizona. A 
Notice of Intent to prepare an EIS was published in the Federal 
Register on April 30, 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 30, 2009, the FHWA, in cooperation 
with ADOT, issued a Notice of Intent (NOI) titled: ``Environmental 
Impact Statement: Final (Pinal) and Gila Counties, AZ.'' The intent of 
the project was to improve and/or realign US 60 in Pinal and Gila 
counties, Arizona from west of Superior at approximately milepost (MP) 
222.6 to east of Globe at approximately MP 258.0. The US 60 Corridor 
bisects the towns of Superior and Miami as well as the city of Globe. 
The project was issued a Federal Aid Number STP-060-D(214)A and an ADOT 
project number 060 GI 222 H7162 01L.
    A No-Build Alternative and several Build Alternatives were being 
considered in the EIS for the Design Year 2040. The No-Build 
Alternative served as the baseline for the analysis conducted under the 
National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
    The design and construction of separate widening and passing lane 
projects within the study corridor have commenced since the initiation 
of this study which have or will improve driving conditions for the 
traveling public. Additionally, funding to complete the study is not 
available. As such, the preparation of the EIS for the US 60 Superior 
to Globe Corridor Improvement/Realignment Study is being terminated. 
Any future transportation improvements or realignments of US 60 
throughout this corridor will be determined and prioritized through 
ADOT's Long Range

and 5-Year Transportation Plans, and any future actions will progress 
under a separate environmental review process, in accordance with all 
applicable laws and regulations.
