Notice of statute of limitations on claims.


The FHWA, on behalf of Caltrans, is issuing this notice to announce actions taken by Caltrans that are final. The actions relate to the proposed interchange improvement project on Interstate 405 (I-405) from Western Avenue to W. 182nd Street in the City of Torrance within the County of Los Angeles, State of California. Those actions grant licenses, permits, and approvals for the project.


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 December 23, 2016. If the Federal law that authorizes judicial review of a claim provides a time period of less than 150 days for filing such claim, then that shorter time period still applies.
