Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Department of Transportation (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 extension of El Segundo from Allied Way to Nash Street in the County of Los Angeles, 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 February 7, 2020. 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.

Effective July 1, 2007, the FHWA assigned, and Caltrans assumed, environmental responsibilities for this project pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327. Notice is hereby given that the Caltrans, have taken final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1) by issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for the following highway project in the State of California: The City of El Segundo proposes to extend Park Place from Allied Way to Nash Street with a railroad grade separation. Park Place currently exists in two segments with a roughly quarter mile gap across an undeveloped area which consists of Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) and Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) railroad spurs. The project would implement a gap closure to develop Park Place as an alternate east-west route between Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) and Douglas Street to relieve congestion along portions of Rosecrans Avenue and PCH, as well as to improve local traffic circulation and access to and from the 1-105 freeway. The actions by the Federal agencies, and the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the Final Environmental Assessment (EA) with a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and Environmental Impact Report (EIR) with a NOD (Notice of Determination) for the project, approved on April 4, 2019, and in other documents in the FHWA project records. The Final EA/FONSI and EIR/NOD, and other project records are available by contacting Caltrans at the addresses provided above. The Final EA/FONSI and EIR/NOD can be viewed and downloaded from the project website at​depts/​planningsafety/​planning/​ea_​1152_​park_​place_​extension_​project/​default.asp, or viewed at public libraries in the project area.
