Notice of Final 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 other Federal agencies.


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, 
Interstate 5 from the cities of Mission Viejo and Lake Forest in the 
County of Orange, 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 July 27, 
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.
