Attached is an updated RW memo and new cover memo for Caltrans approval and FHWA authorization when requesting a RW Cert 3 or 3W (advertise only and work around). The revised process includes a new cover memo, required by FHWA, which includes a description of the pertinent supplemental information qualifying the project for a RW Cert 3/3W and is required to obtain FHWA authorization.
The new process also applies to federally funded local agency projects both ON or OFF the SHS: ” . . . This policy applies to all Departmental Federal-aid projects and extends to Local Public Agency (LPA) Federal-aid projects, whether ON or OFF the State Highway System. ”
Local Agencies should work with their Local Assistance Right of Way contacts here in District 3 when preparing their requests.
