SUMMARY: This notice announces final environmental actions taken by the 
FHWA, the National Park Service (NPS), the United States Fish and 
Wildlife Service (USF&WS), and other Federal agencies that are final 
within the meaning of 23 U.S.C. Sec.  139(l)(1). The actions relate to

grants approval for the road improvement project element of the plan.

DATES: By this notice, the FHWA is advising the public of final agency 
actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). A claim seeking judicial review 
of the Federal agency actions on the roadway project will be barred 
unless the claim is filed on or before March 28, 2014. If the Federal 
law that authorizes judicial review of a claim provides a time period 
of less than 150 days for filing such claim, then that shorter time 
period still applies.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that the FHWA, has 
taken final agency action subject to 23 U.S.C. Sec.  139(l)(1) by 
issuing approval for the following highway project in the State of 
Washington: Stehekin Valley Road Improvement Project. The project is a 
component of the Stehekin River Corridor Implementation Plan (Plan) in 
the Lake Chelan National Recreation Area for which the U.S. Department 
of Interior National Park Service issued a Record of Decision dated 
March 13, 2013. FHWA served as a cooperating agency in the development 
of the EIS, and issued a FHWA Record of Decision, dated September 27, 
2013. FHWA-administered funds will be used for the project and FHWA 
will administer the construction contact. The project will realign 1.8 
miles of the existing 10 mile alignment, moving this section outside of 
the Stehekin River's channel migration zone to reduce flooding by the 
river and, consequently, the threat to public safety and access and 
maintenance costs. Another 7.4 miles of the road will undergo minor 
improvements including resurfacing and culvert replacement within the 
existing roadway prism. In addition, a 1200-foot long connector road 
will be built to provide access between the realigned portion of the 
road and the existing alignment. The actions by the Federal agencies 
and the laws under which such actions were taken are described in the 
Record of Decision issued on September 27, 2013. The NPS EIS, NPS ROD, 
and the FHWA ROD, are available by contacting the FHWA at the address
