Notice of limitation on claims for judicial review.

SUMMARY:

The FHWA, on behalf of the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), is issuing this notice to announce actions taken by UDOT. The actions relate to the proposed I-80 and State Street Interchange project in the County of Salt Lake, State of Utah. Those actions grant licenses, permits and approvals for the project.

DATES:

By this notice, the FHWA, on behalf of UDOT, 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 December 21, 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being or have been carried-out by UDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated January 17, 2017 and executed by FHWA and UDOT. Notice is hereby given that the UDOT has taken final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1) by issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for the I-80 and State Street Interchange project in the State of Utah. This project proposes to replace the existing I-80 and State Street interchange located in the City of South Salt Lake, Salt Lake County, Utah. The project consists of the following improvements: Construct a Main Street westbound on-ramp with a westbound frontage road between State Street and Main Street (interchange configuration to remain similar to existing configuration on the south side); Widen I-80 structure and add additional lanes on State Street under structure; Construct free-flow right-turn lane on the eastbound off-ramp; Eliminate right-turn on red light for the eastbound on-ramp; and Realign curb so all traffic uses striped lanes (frontage road access allowed from ramp lanes) for the eastbound on-ramp. These improvements were identified in the Final Environmental Impact Statement as Alternative 3N—Split Diamond at Main Street, North Side Only. The actions by the Federal agencies, and the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the project (Final Environmental Impact Statement I-80 and State Street Interchange in South Salt Lake City, Utah, Project No. F-180-3[180]123), approved on July 18, 2017, in the UDOT Record of Decision (ROD) for the project (Utah Department of Transportation Record of Decision for I-80 and State Street Interchange in South Salt Lake City, Utah) issued on July 18, 2017, and in other documents in the UDOT project records. The FEIS, ROD, and other project records are available by contacting UDOT at the address provided above. The UDOT FEIS and ROD can be viewed and downloaded from the project Web site at http://www.udot.utah.gov/​i80statestreet/​.
