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, interchange improvement of Valley Boulevard at Interstate 605 and Temple Avenue in the City of Industry, Los Angeles County, 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 November 1, 2021.
