Notice of Final Federal Agency Actions on Proposed Highway in 

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. Sec.  
139(l)(1). The actions relate to a proposed highway project, Trinity 
Parkway from Interstate Highway 35 East (IH35E)/State Highway (SH) 183 
to U.S. 175/SH 310 in the County of Dallas, State of 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. Sec.  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 8, 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.

Administrator, Texas Division, Federal Highway Administration, 300 E. 
8th Street, Room 826, Austin, Texas 78701; 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

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: The Trinity Parkway (Texas Department of 
Transportation CSJ 0918-45-121) would consist of a limited-access toll 
facility on new location in the City of Dallas, extending from the IH 
35E/SH 183 interchange (northern terminus) to the US 175/SH 310 
interchange (southern terminus), a distance of approximately nine 
miles. The facility would ultimately consist of six mixed-flow tolled 
mainlanes, local street interchanges, and interchanges at the northern 
terminus, southern terminus, Woodall Rodgers Freeway, and IH 45. The 
primary purpose for the Trinity Parkway is to manage congestion on 
existing highways through the downtown Dallas area. Trinity Parkway 
would help manage congestion on IH 35E (Lower Stemmons and South R.L. 
Thornton Freeways), IH 30, and other major transportation facilities 
within the Trinity Parkway project area to improve mobility and safety, 
and thereby increase accessibility to businesses and public facilities.
    The actions by the Federal agencies, and the laws under which such 
actions were taken, are described in the Final Environmental Impact 
Statement (FEIS) for the project, approved on March 7, 2014, in the 
FHWA Record of Decision (ROD) issued on April 2, 2015, and in other 
documents in the FHWA administrative record. The FEIS, ROD, and other 
documents in the FHWA administrative record file are available by 
contacting the FHWA at the address provided above. The FHWA FEIS and 
ROD can be viewed and downloaded from the project Web site at: https://
