can be submitted online at: http://sanbag.ca.gov/projects/mi_fwy_I-10-Corridor.html.

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 assigned 
National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) agency, in cooperation with 
San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG) will prepare a draft 
Environmental Impact Statement on a proposal for a highway improvement 
project in San Bernardino County, California. The proposed Interstate 
10 (I-10) Corridor Project consists of improvements and widening along 
an existing 35-mile segment of the I-10 freeway mainline. The proposed 
project would also involve improvement of existing bridges and freeway 
ramps. The following alternatives are being considered:

Alternative 1: No Build (No Action)
Alternative 2: One High Occupancy Vehicle Lane In Each Direction
Alternative 3: Two Express Lanes In Each Direction

    The proposed project would widen the I-10 corridor from 
approximately 2 miles west of the Los Angeles/San Bernardino County 
line in the City of Pomona (Post Mile 46.12) to Ford Street in the City 
of Redlands (Post Mile 33.80). It is anticipated that the proposed 
project will require a Clean Water Act Section 404 permit, a Section 
408 permit, a Section 4(f) De Minimis Finding, an Endangered Species 
Act Section 7 Incidental Take Authorization (Biological Opinion) and 
Section 106 Finding of Effect Determination.
    Letters describing the proposed action and soliciting comments will 
be sent to appropriate Federal, State, Participating Agencies, local 
agencies, and to private organizations and citizens who have previously 
expressed or are known to have interest in this proposal. Interested 
tribal governments will be involved as determined by consultation with 
the Native American Heritage Commission.
    Public scoping meetings will be held on the following dates and 
locations:

(1) Tuesday, November 13, 2012 from 5-7 p.m. at the Hilton San 
Bernardino, 285 East Hospitality Lane, San Bernardino, California 92408

public hearing.

and suggestions are invited from all interested parties. Comments or
