This notice announces actions taken by the FHWA and other Federal agencies that are final within the meaning of 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). The actions relate to a proposed highway project, Loop 567 from Farm to Market Road (FM) 51 to Business Route (BU) 377H in Hood County, Texas.

By this notice, the FHWA is advising the public of final agency actions 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 February 14, 2011.

Notice is hereby given that the FHWA and other Federal agencies have taken final agency actions by issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for the following highway project in the State of Texas: Loop 567 from FM 51 to BU 377H in Hood County, Texas. The project will include the construction of a 2.4 mile long highway that will be constructed in two phases. The interim phase will provide two travel lanes, and the ultimate phase will provide four travel lanes.
