Notice of Final Federal Agency Actions on Proposed Highway in 
California

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of Limitation on Claims for Judicial Review of Actions 
by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), pursuant to 
23 U.S.C. 327, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Oceanic 
and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Marine Fisheries 
Service.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FHWA, on behalf of Caltrans, is issuing this notice to 
announce actions taken by Caltrans, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and 
NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service that are final within the 
meaning of 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). The actions relate to a proposed 
highway project known as South Coast 101 HOV Lanes that adds one lane 
in each direction on U.S. 101 between Bailard Avenue in the City of 
Carpinteria and Cabrillo Boulevard in the City of Santa Barbara, in the 
County of Santa Barbara, State of California. Those actions grant 
licenses, permits, and approvals for the project.

DATES: 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 
6, 2015. 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.
