SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that FHWA and other 
Federal agencies have taken final agency actions related to the Pyramid 
Highway/US 395 Connection Project located in Washoe County, Nevada. The 
FHWA, in cooperation with the Nevada Department of Transportation 
(NDOT), prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) (FHWA-NV-
EIS-12-02-D) and Final EIS (FHWA-NV-EIS-12-02-F) to improve Pyramid 
Highway between Queen Way and Calle de la Plata and provide a new 
connection between Pyramid Highway and United States (US) 395 (referred 
to as the US 395 Connection). The project includes arterial 
improvements along approximately seven miles of Pyramid Highway from 
Queen Way to Calle de la Plata, and a new US 395 Connection that would 
start near Sparks Boulevard, run west along a ridge alignment, cross 
Sun Valley Boulevard south of Rampion Way, and terminate at the 
existing US 395/Parr Boulevard interchange, which would be modified to 
accommodate the new US 395 Connection. A new interchange for the US 395 
Connection would be built west of Sun Valley Boulevard. The project 
includes improvements on Disc Drive between Pyramid Highway and Vista 
Boulevard, and would extend Disc Drive from Pyramid Highway west to the 
new US 395 Connection. Bicycle and pedestrian facility improvements 
would also be provided along new and improved roadways.
    The actions by the Federal agencies, and the laws under which such 
actions were taken, are described in the Record of Decision (ROD)
