The FHWA, on behalf of Caltrans, is issuing this notice to announce actions taken by Caltrans that are final. The actions relate to the proposed Interstate 105 Express Lanes Project at post mile 105 R0.5/R18.1 and 110 R13.8/R14.8 within the County of Los Angeles, State of California. Those actions grant licenses, permits, and approvals for the project.

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 6, 2021.
