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 the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).

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

SUMMARY: The FHWA, on behalf of Caltrans, is issuing this notice to 
announce actions taken by Caltrans that are final within the meaning of 
23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). The actions relate to a proposed highway project 
on State Route 76 (SR-76) from postmile 32.6 to 33.2 in the County of 
San Diego, 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 May 29, 
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.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For Caltrans: Olga Estrada, Chief, 
Environmental Branch A, California Department of Transportation--
District 11, 4050 Taylor Street, San Diego, CA 92110, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., 
619-688-0229, Olga.Estrada@dot.ca.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Effective July 1, 2007, the Federal Highway 
Administration (FHWA) assigned, and the California Department of 
Transportation (Caltrans) assumed, environmental responsibilities for 
this project pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327. Notice is hereby given that the 
Caltrans has 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 project is located in San Diego 
County in SR-76 from 0.2 miles west of Rincon Springs Road to 0.1 mile 
west of Water Mountain Road (postmile 32.6-33.2). The project would 
perform safety improvements to the intersection of SR-76 and Valley 
Center Road by upgrading the intersection and realigning the roadways 
adjacent to the intersection. The preferred alternative would install a 
roundabout at the SR-76/Valley Center Road juncture. The actions by the 
Federal agencies, and the laws under which such actions were taken, are 
described in the Final Environmental Assessment (FEA) for the project, 
approved on October 28, 2014, in the FHWA Finding of No Significant 
Impact (FONSI) issued on October 28, 2014, and in other documents in 
the FHWA project records. The Final Initial Study with Mitigated 
Negative Declaration (IS/MND), EA/FONSI, and other project records are 
available by contacting Caltrans at the addresses provided above. The 
Caltrans Final IS/MND and EA/FONSI can be viewed and downloaded from 
the project Web site at http://www.dot.ca.gov/dist11/ or viewed at 
public libraries in the project area. Pending Federal actions include:
     401 Water Quality Certification from the Regional Water 
Quality Control Board, under Section 401 of the Clean Water Act
     402 Permit for point source discharge of pollutant, under 
Section 402 of the Clean Water Act
     404 Permit pursuant to the Memorandum of Understanding
