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 widening approximately eight miles of Interstate 64 from west of Exit 242 (Marquis Parkway/State Highway 199) in the east to west of Exit 234 (State Highway 199) to the west. Those actions grant licenses, permits, and approvals for the project.

A claim seeking judicial review of the Federal agency actions on the project will be barred unless the claim is filed on or before August 21, 2017.
