Notice of Final Federal Agency Actions on Grand Parkway (State 
Highway 99), Segments H and I-1, in Texas

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of Limitation on Claims for Judicial Review of Actions 
by FHWA and Other Federal Agencies.

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

SUMMARY: This notice announces actions taken by the FHWA and other 
Federal agencies that are final within the meaning of 23 U.S.C. 
139(l)(1). The actions relate to a proposed highway project, Grand 
Parkway (State Highway 99) Segments H and I-1, from US 59 (N)/I-69 to 
I-10 (E) in Montgomery, Harris, Liberty, and Chambers Counties, Texas. 
Those actions grant licenses, permits, and approvals for the project.

DATES: By this notice, the FHWA 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 December 22, 2014. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that the FHWA and 
other Federal agencies have taken final agency actions by issuing 
licenses, permits, and approvals for the following highway project in 
the State of Texas: Grand Parkway (State Highway 99) Segments H and I-1 
from US 59 (N)/I-69 to I-10 (E) in Montgomery, Harris, Liberty, and 
Chambers Counties. The project will be a 37.4 mile- long, four-lane 
controlled access toll road. The project will begin at US 59 (N)/I-69 
in Montgomery County and then proceeds east/southeast through Harris 
and Liberty Counties, ending at I-10 (E) in Chambers County. There are 
proposed grade separated interchanges with access ramps at nine 
locations. Overpasses with no access to the cross-streets are proposed 
at eight locations. Preliminary design proposes continuous frontage 
roads where Segment H parallels FM 1485. This section will be 
reconstructed in a frontage road configuration for overall improved 
traffic operations. The purpose of the project is to efficiently link 
the suburban communities and major roadways, enhance mobility and 
safety, and respond to economic growth.
