Notice of Withdrawal of the Notice of Intent To Prepare an 
Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Proposed Sheep Mountain 
Parkway Multimodal Transportation Project, Clark County, NV

AGENCY: U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of Withdrawal of the Notice of Intent to prepare an EIS 
for Sheep Mountain Parkway Multimodal Transportation Project, which 
includes highway, transit, and non-motorized trail components in Clark 
County, Nevada.

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

SUMMARY: The FHWA is issuing this notice to advise the public that, 
effective immediately, the Notice of Intent (NOI) (Federal Register 
Vol. 72, No. 214; FR Doc. 07-5518) to prepare an EIS for the proposed 
Sheep Mountain Parkway Transportation Project, which includes highway, 
transit, and non-motorized trail components in Clark County, Nevada is 
being withdrawn. The NOI for the EIS was announced on November 6, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For the Federal Highway 
Administration: Mr. Abdelmoez Abdalla, Environmental Program Manager, 
Federal Highway Administration, 705 N. Plaza, Suite 220, Carson City, 
NV 89701, Telephone: 775-687-1231, email: 
Abdelmoez.Abdalla@fhwa.dot.gov. For the Nevada Department of 
Transportation: Mr. Steve Cooke, Chief, Environmental Services, Nevada 
Department of Transportation, 1263 South Stewart Street, Carson City, 
NV 89712, Telephone: 775-888-7686, email: scooke@dot.state.nv.us.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the Nevada 
Department of Transportation, the Regional Transportation of Southern 
Nevada, and the City of Las Vegas (City) will not pursue the 
development of an EIS for the Sheep Mountain Parkway. The purpose of 
the proposed project was to accommodate travel demands resulting from 
existing and planned development in the northern Las Vegas Valley by 
considering multimodal transportation facilities. Based on a number of 
external issues affecting the completion of the Sheep Mountain Parkway 
EIS, the City has decided not to pursue the project as originally 
envisioned at this time. The City plans to pursue only the western 
portion of Sheep Mountain Parkway extending from Fort Apache Road to 
Clark County 215 (CC-215). The City will initiate the National 
Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) activities with the Bureau of Land 
Management as the Lead Agency to secure the additionally needed right-
of-way.

    Issued on August 21, 2012.

Division Administrator, Carson City, Nevada.
