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


This notice announces actions taken by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) pursuant to its assigned responsibilities under 23 U.S.C. 327 that are final within the meaning of 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). The actions relate to a proposed highway project—Grand Avenue Widening Project, City of Santa Ana, in the County of Orange, State of California. Those actions grant licenses, permits, and approvals for the project.


By this notice, Caltrans 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 April 4, 2012. 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.
