U.S. DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION FEDERAL HIGHWAY ADMINISTRATION REGION EIGHT 555 Zang Street P.O. Box 25246 Denver, Colorado 80225 December 18, 1979 Mr. Brian Beard, President Sierra Club, Utah Chapter 93 East 1st South Logan, Utah 84321 Dear Mr. Beard, In your letters of November 20 and 21, 1979, you requested copies of Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) regulations for implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Also, you requested support documentation for determining that highway construction activites proposed for Logan Canyon, Utah, will have no significant impacts. Regarding the request for agency implementing regulations, we have enclosed copies of DOT Order 5610.1C: Procedures for considering Environmental Impacts, and the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for Federal Highway Administration 23 CFR 771 as contained in the October 15, 1979 Federal Register. For all NEPA-related activities and documents processed by FHWA after November 30, 1979, there must be compliance with the CEQ regulations and DOT Order. Also, the proposed FHWA procedures should be used as supplemental guidance. Concerning the Logan Canyon construction activites, we are enclosing a December 10, 1979 memorandum from Federal Highway Division Administrator Bohn to UDOT Director Hurley rescinding FHWA concurrence in the preliminary Category III assignment to this project. We believe the information provided addresses your concerns. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact Administrator Bohn or our office. Sincerely yours, K. P. LAUTENBACH Daniel Watt Regional Federal Highway Administrator
