Notice is hereby given that the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and State of Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT), Highways
Division propose to restripe the westbound H-201 Freeway in order to extend the existing auxiliary lane for the Aiea/Pearlridge Off-Ramp back
to the Fort Shafter Off-Ramp. This project will be considered a federal action and undertaking, as defined by Section 106 of the National
Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) of 1966, as amended (2006). The Area of Potential Effect (APE) is along the H-201 Freeway from the vicinity of
the H-3 Freeway Underpass (mile post 0.86) to the Fort Shafter Off-Ramp (mile post 3.88). It also includes the grassy area between the Halawa
Heights Off-ramp and H-201 Freeway as a potential staging area outside of the project limits. The area of the APE is approximately 41 acres.
It includes the length and width of the H-201 Freeway in the westbound direction up to the right-of-way that is approximately 3.02 miles long
and up to 330 feet wide and extends at most 24 inches below the surface. The majority of proposed work will not extend below the surface.
The project consists of installing striping, pavement marking, and signage; cold planing, resurfacing, and reconstructing spot areas; cleaning
out existing drains; removal of grass and silt buildup adjacent to roadway in spot areas; and trimming of hedges along the freeway median.
All construction activity will be done within the HDOT’s right-of-way.
Pursuant to Section 106 of the NHPA, Native Hawaiian organizations and Native Hawaiian descendants with ancestral, lineal or cultural ties
to, cultural and historical property knowledge of and/or concerns for, and cultural or religious attachment to the proposed project area are
requested to contact HDOT. Other individuals and organizations with demonstrated legal, economic or historic preservation interest in the
undertaking are asked to contact HDOT and share information you may have on historical and cultural sites that you may have knowledge of
within the proposed APE. We welcome any information within 30 days of notice to Ms. Li Nah Okita via email at email@example.com, or by
U.S. Postal Service to the Department of Transportation, Highways Division, Design Branch, Design Section, 601 Kamokila Boulevard, Room
609, Kapolei, Hawaii, 96707.
