Notice To Rescind a Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental 
Impact Statement: San Francisco County, CA

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice to rescind a Notice of Intent to prepare an 
Environmental Impact Statement.

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

SUMMARY: The FHWA, on behalf of the California Department of 
Transportation (Caltrans), announces this notice to advise the public 
of the rescinding of the Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an 
Environmental Impact Statement for improvements that were proposed for 
the Bayview Transportation Improvements Project. The NOI was published 
in the Federal Register on June 2, 2004. This rescission is based on 
major changes in the scope of the project.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Melanie Brent, Office Chief, 
California Department of Transportation, District 4, Office of 
Environmental Analysis, P.O. Box 23660, MS-8B, Oakland, California 
94623-0660, Telephone: (510) 286-5231, E-mail: melanie_brent@dot.ca.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Effective July 1, 2007, the Federal Highway 
Administration (FHWA) assigned, and the California Department of 
Transportation (Caltrans) assumed, environmental responsibilities for 
this project pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327. Caltrans as the delegated 
National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) agency is rescinding the NOI 
to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for proposed roadway 
improvements in the southeast sector of San Francisco, California to 
facilitate truck traffic from U.S. Highway 101 to planned industrial 
development in the former Hunters Point Shipyard. The NOI is being 
rescinded because the land use plans for the former Hunters Point 
Shipyard have evolved to a broader mix of residential, commercial, 
research and development, and industrial activities and there is a need 
to connect Hunters Point with Candlestick Point, and other parts of the 
Bayview District and beyond. The rescoped project will: Emphasize 
transit, bikes, pedestrians, and autos rather than trucks; conform to 
the City's ``transit first policy'' as a means to reduce vehicular 
traffic on streets as well as on U.S. 101 and its interchanges; connect 
neighborhoods within the Bayview District through a new bus rapid 
transit (BRT) route (the ``spine'' of the proposed project); provide 
transfer points between the BRT line and other transit routes; 
construct a new transit center; facilitate bicycle and pedestrian 
movement on streets that are in need of improvement; and create a more 
sustainable and viable community. Given the changes in scope of the 
proposed action, Caltrans intends to prepare an Environmental 
Assessment to determine if the project has the potential to 
significantly affect the quality of the human environment.
