Notice of Limitations on Claims for Judicial Review of Actions by FHWA and other Federal Agencies.
This notice announces actions taken by the FHWA and other Federal agencies that are final within the meaning of 23 U.S.C. 139(I)(1). The actions relate to a proposed transportation improvement project (Logan 200 East, minor arterial project) in Logan, Cache County in the State of Utah. These actions grant licenses, permits, and approvals for the project.
By this notice, the FHWA is advising the public of final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(I)(1). A claim seeking judicial review of the FHWA actions on the highway project will be barred unless the claim is filed on or before August 1, 2012. If the Federal law that authorizes judicial review of a claim provides a time period of less than 180 days for filling such claim, then that shorter time period still applies.
