AGENCY: Forest Service, USDA. Federal Highway Administration, USDOT.
ACTION: Notice of withdrawal.
SUMMARY: The Bend-Fort Rock Ranger District and FHWA are withdrawing their intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Kapka Butte Sno-park Construction project. The original Notice of Intent (NOI) was published in theFederal Registeron January 2, 2009 (Vol. 74, No.1, p 71-72). A Notice of Availability was published in theFederal Registeron April 15, 2011 (Vol. 76, No.73, p 21345). The Forest Service has determined that an EIS is not required for this project and therefore, it was decided to document the project in an environmental assessment. Pursuant to federal regulations, the Federal Highways Administration is not required to be a co-lead agency, and will instead participate as a cooperating agency.
