Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.


Notice of Limitation on Claims for Judicial Review of Actions by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).


The FHWA, on behalf of Caltrans, is issuing this notice to announce actions taken by Caltrans that are final. The actions relate to a proposed highway project on State Route 133 from just south of El Toro Road to State Route 73 between Post Miles 3.1 and R4.1 in the City of Laguna Beach, 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 April 8, 2019. 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.
