Notice of Limitation on Claims for Judicial Review of Actions by FHWA


This notice announces actions taken by the FHWA that are final within the meaning of 23 U.S.C. 139(l) (1). The actions relate to the widening of Interstate 64 for approximately eight miles between the I-464 Interchange and the I-664/I-264 Interchange in the City of Chesapeake, Virginia. The widening project includes the replacement of the High Rise Bridge over the Elizabeth River. Those 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(l)(1). A claim seeking judicial review of the Federal agency actions on the project will be barred unless the claim is filed on or before April 6, 2017. 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.
