The FHWA, on behalf of Caltrans, is issuing this notice to announce actions taken by Caltrans that are final within the meaning of 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). The actions relate to a proposed highway project, Palo Comado Canyon Road Interchange, along U.S. 101 from postmile 33.0 to 34.4 in the County of Los Angeles, State of California. Those actions grant licenses, permits, and approvals for the project.


By this notice, the FHWA, on behalf of 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 July 28, 2013.
