Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.


Notice of Limitation on Claims for Judicial Review of Actions by FHWA.


This notice announces actions taken by the FHWA that are final within the meaning of 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). The actions relate to a proposed highway project on Interstate 5 from State Route 91 in Orange County to Interstate 605 in Los Angeles County. Those actions grant licenses, permits, and approvals for the project.


By this notice, the FHWA is advising the public of final agency action subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). A claim seeking judicial review of the Federal agency actions on the highway project will be barred unless the claim is filed on or before July 14, 2008. If the Federal law that authorizes judicial review of a claim provides a time period of less than 180 days for filing such claim, then that shorter time period still applies.
