permits, and approvals for the project.

DATES: By this notice, TxDOT 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 September 4, 2015. If the 
Federal law that authorizes judicial review of a claim provides a time
